The beach in winter is quiet. It wonders where the happy voices and cheerful tourists have gone. Why have I been deserted? So what if the water is a bit cold and the air bracing?
Chorefto is the beach town located below the village of Zagora on the Pelion Peninsula of east central Greece. Summer is the busy season, but my visit in October was quiet and lonely.
An unused house near the stream.
By the sea, by the sea, by the beautiful sea,
You and I you and I, oh! How happy we'll be,
When each wave comes a rolling in,
We will duck or swim, and we'll float and fool around the water.
Over and under, and then up for air,
Pa is rich, Ma is rich, so now what do we care?
I love to be beside your side, beside the sea,
Beside the seaside, by the beautiful sea.
(Words by Harold Atteridge, Music by Harry Carroll (1914))
I took these photographs with a Samsung Galaxy A53 5G mobile phone.
It seems one could spend a lifetime exploring all of Greece's coast roads.
It reminds me a bit of the coast here in northern Korea, except the buildings in Greece look more picturesque. I thought about taking my vacation in a small town this winter, but I was afraid of not being able to find an open restaurant or convenience store. Great for day trips, though. No people!
This is an interesting area and as always I enjoyed the photographs. It makes me want to travel again!
Thanks to you all for your comments. Definitely do go to Greece for the scenery, history, food, friendly people, and the sea. I just saw an interview with Prime Minister Mitsotakis, who confirmed that Greece is the economic success story of Europe now. My sister wrote that they have enjoyed an amazing tourist season, summer and winter.
