Sunday’s LVSNG: Lazy days edition

If this year’s summer had a soundtrack, “Impossible Spaces” by Sandro Perri would be it.
I’m crazy about this guy.

“Today I saw you, big as the ocean. Yesterday I was sure I’d forgotten how to swim. I jumped right in you covered me like a lotion. Yesterday I was sure I was losing my skin. The sting of salt, the thrill of devotion. That’s the one I trust, incoming forward motion.
I wanna come to you, I wanna come. Really now, what else?”

 

Belle-ile en Mer

Τhe most remote and Western part I visited in France was this small island in Brittany, where the ocean meets the sky for ever and nothing stands between Europe and America but water. Belle-ile en Mer is a quiet paradise
for those who love nature and the wild face of the Atlantic.
Highlights:
The seafοod is absolutely amazing. Oysters and clams and crabs and fish. And vegetables and chevre. Everyday.
Port-Cotton: Where the sea water smashes fifty meters below your feet roaring and charging on the rocks, turning into a velvet foam that climbs to the ground. Every burden is blown away by the winds, that only herbs and seagulls can abide. Undefined nostalgia, food for the soul.
The weather: In three minutes time the summer sun may disappear and the water becomes silver while a storm straight from the atlantic is on its way.
The low tide lets you walk on the sea bed. Literally. Water recedes living boats, seaweed, clams and medusas lying on the sand.
Hydrangeas are big like trees but not as pretty as the wild flowers in the woods.
I’ve never seen anything like that night sky.

Lavender

And this is the most beautiful dress I have ever slipped in. Not really a dress, since it’s a three piece miracle made of silk crepe in an icy lavender color, consisting of a maxi skirt, a top and a pvc belt.
By glorious Roksanda Ilincic.

Summer greetings

During my annual date with Tinos:

Swiming and eating was my daily routine.
My boys were the best fellow travelers I could ever ask.
Tinos offers some of the most beautiful beaches in Greece (if not in the whole world).
It was very windy -it always is.
The sunset photo was taken at Triantaros village.
All pareos and scarfs featured here are from TE.Pareo.
Try the local cheese/honey/figs -I ate tons of them and still fitted in my 50s high waisted bikinis (obsession is the right word to use). Try fish soup at Maistros tavern at Panormos, local delicacies at Eleni at Triantaros and all you can eat at Thalassaki, Isternia bay.
The boys fished 4 kg of fish. That’s what boys do.
