Elafonissi

The day I was supposed to return the rental car
I decided to keep it to take a day trip with Koko
to the beach of Elafonissi in southern Crete.

Neither of us had been before.

Along the road, we stopped at an impressive ancient Greek Orthodox Church built inside a cave.
I had visited it before, but Koko had not. 

Elafonissi was beautiful
It was a little difficult to find parking because there were so many tourists
From a distance, they looked like tiny ants along the shore

The water was a beautiful clear blue
the sand white with specks of pink shell pieces.
It was incredibly warm and shallow;
we were able to walk straight across without the water even reaching our ankles.

On the way back
we stopped at the Monastery of Chrysoskalitissa.

It was a lovely way to spend a lovely day with a lovely man.
