Travel Theme: Inviting

Myrtos Beach – Kefalonia/Cephalonia

As waves curve along the beach they also pick up the finest bits of marble; this creates sediment plumes that follow the curve of the beach with the direction of the waves giving the water the most inviting shade of turquoise.

Myrtos has been described as “one of the most dramatic beaches in Greece”, with its “mile-and-a-half long arc of dazzling white pebbles.”

It was used as the location for the mine explosion episode in the film Captain Corelli’s Mandolin ~Wikipedia

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. The most turquoise water I have ever seen is not so far from you Sylvia – along the keys in Florida. Took my breath away, but I was in a coach so couldn’t get any photos.

        1. Early retirement for you? Imagine a year out to explore them and write a daily blog about your adventures – not to mention the wonderful photo opps 😉
