Greece blue - Pictures from a Holiday

As promised here I am with a series of pictures shot on the Zakynthos Island with my 1.5 mpixel Android. Would you believe it? I haven't photoshoped the pictures, (don't know how to use the program) so just please have a look at the shades of blue and emerald sea of Greece. On our last day in Zakynthos we met a very nice Canadian couple who were traveling on this super refurbished boat. They had been on every wonderful coast of Europe and we had a nice chat with them. It wasn't a yacht, (yachts are oh yes, wonderful, but sometimes owned by not so wonderful people) and that's why this laid back but still so elegant and superpatriotic boat captured my attention. Besides, the man on it looked like Hemingway. He was the owner, who cheerfully invited us for a chat. That was one of the most interesting encounters I made on the isle.
 This is a view of the coasts surrounding the island, while doing the Zakynthos Tour of the Blue caves which is a mini cruise on a wonderful vintage boat.

 This is the Kalamaki beach where we stayed. We had a wonderful view of two isles Pelusi and Marathonissi, two little island. Have an attentive look at Marathonissi. It has the shape of a turtle. The island is very fond of the Caretta Caretta turtles, a rare species of turles living here and in Sicily. 

Crystal beach, my favorite Kalamaki restaurant.

And of course, apart from the English abundant breakfasts and Greek salands (which were a real problem for my Italian husband) we loved the mussaka.

Being there with a three and something year little boy, we had our fair share of Disneyland.

 And these are some of the heavenly pictures of the Greek sea and the Blue Caves.

The shipwreck. The beach is white and the water of the sea is pure, TRANSPARENT and really BLUUUUUUUEEEEEEE

My little boy!

Hope you enjoyed this post! I'll be off for two weeks or so! See you in September! Have a gret time!
