The usual...

Do you get that depressing feeling towards the end of August? I try not to, but I do. Everyone keeps talking about how they're going back to work, or back to school, and they start saying "Have a nice winter!". Unavoidably, I start thinking that I myself will have to begin preparing for my classes soon. This summer went by unbelievably quickly; one moment I was glad for my new sandals and dresses, and next thing you know, it's almost September.

To ward off this end-of-summer depression we spent another day at the beach. This post is full of the usual: the sea, mountains, roads and sunsets (and a waffle).

Afternoon swimming...
Zavia beach, Syvota
 ...and then a walk around the village

...a stop for a waffle and some iced espresso

 ...some more walking



Early evening, time to get home...
 

 

Just in time for the sunset!





While at Syvota, I couldn't help myself and bought this little scarf. Not everything is bad about the autumn approaching!


I hope you enjoyed your Friday, too! Have a nice weekend! ;)

  1. You're so fortunate to live so near the water and to have those inviting landscapes. It's flat as a pancake around here. You have to drive a little over an hour to finally see some hills. (Very soft, rolling hills which I love).

    I, too, get depressed this time of year. During my school days I felt PANIC once those back-to-school commercials began airing on tv. Oh, how I loathed school!

    1. I'd love to visit Texas, although it's flat.
      What I loathe is this in-between period (September) when you have to adjust and get back to your normal working schedule...
      Have a nice weekend Kristen!

  9. Amazing photos!

    You need to watermark them so nobody will profit off of them.

    If you use Picasa, just click on the 'ABC' icon, pic your font and size and write on top of your photos your name of the blog or your own name. Claim them and keep them for yourself! Just fyi.

    Thank you for your comment about my doggie and grands! I love that your name is Evi! nice to know you.

    1. Thank you Renae!
      You're right about watermarking, I've been thinking about doing but I never got round to it. I don't use Picasa but I'll figure a way to make it work!
      Thanks for the tip! :)

  15. Great photos! What a beautiful beach. And the waffle looks delicious!

    For me, I can't wait for August to end. Summer here is way too hot, so I am looking forward to the winter. But I do understand why you feel that way. My sister is a teacher and she always dreads the end of summer.

    1. Welcome back Julie!
      I see what you mean. When winter rolls in for good, I'm ok too. It's adjusting to the work schedule after two months of wandering free that kills me.
      Look forward to seeing you around!

    1. Yup, that's me! Evi is short for Paraskevi (Friday= sexta-feira).
      Thanks for your kind words and I'm very happy to announce that today I'm going to watch Martha Marcy May Marlene which you recommended.
      I'm keeping Headhunters in mind, too. I don't know what has got into me but I haven't watched many movies this summer. Luckily, the local theater opens on Thursday!

      Enjoy your weekend Emma! ;)
