2nd Advent with snow

First snow.

First snow.

This weekend 2nd Advent, the winter has reached my part of the world! I like it a lot, but unfortunately the weather forecast indicates temperature above zero the coming days. That’s not positive for a person like me who wants to go skiing. Anyway, the snowfall especially today, forced me to do a lot of snow shovelling which is a good training.

Lunch at Apolonas

When you arrive to this little village in the north of Naxos during summer time, the taverns by the harbour is packed with people. Some of the arrives with bus, doing a tour around the island.

When arrived 13 of April, I started to hesitate if any of the taverns was open. No one of them seem to be ready for guests. Anyway, the last one in the bay was open, Captain Michalis café, and I could have a lovely Greek salad, looking at the calm water of the small harbour.

The first day with my rented scooter, I started a little late. Well, I guess that Mike at Mike’s Bikes & Cars did not expect any customers at 10 of April. I have to wait for him outside his shop, while he was at the bank office . And I was not the only one. Three cute French girls also wanted a vehicle!
As the faithful reader maybe remember, I first went to Chalki for lunch. As a result I arrived to my “first” beach as late as 5 P.M. Glifada is a lovely beach indeed, but my intention to work on my tan had no effect what’s so ever! I was almost freezing by the somewhat chilling wind. But maybe I shall look upon this with positive eyes; I did not burn myself; a white guy who just arrived from the Swedish winter!
