A Greek Market and a Thrill at Sea

The fresh food and vegetables in Greece are world renowned and since we were staying at a traditional Greek Fishing Village, we thought the local food market would be a fantastic way of finding tasty and fresh produce. 

I’m not going to lie, the market was tiny! But there was so much fresh fruit and veg on offer that our eyes couldn’t believe the amazing array of colour. 


We left the market after half an hour, we decided to leave the market. As much as we love our fresh fruit and vegetables we had other seas to sail (quite literally!)


We walked a little further up the coast with the intention of hiring a little boat for the afternoon. After a 20 minute stroll along the crystal blue waters we met a lovely local man who allowed us to take one of his motorboats’ for the afternoon. 

We had a amazing time, and sailed further up the coast to the beautiful village of Plaka before catching a sly glimpse of the island of Spinalonga. However, there were points when the waves got a tad choppy and I felt like we were going to go overboard! The feeling of the wind in our hair and the gentle splashes of water on us as we sailed around the sedictive sea’s was such a thrill and our adrenaline rush lasted for quite a while afterwards.

Please excuse the very unflattering photo’s that follow, I guess life at sea is a tad rough! 


That night, when we were all windswept after the boat we headed for dinner a little off the sea front as we decided to try a more inland restaurant. 

I couldn’t resist a few snaps along the port, it was too magical not to!
