Today was a vacotiony-vacation day. We drove through a winding gorge to reach the quiet beaches at Damnoni and Amoudi. In the morning we walked along Damnoni, up a dirt road to a cave full of goats, and settled in to the beach front cafe for a long, slow lunch and afternoon frappe.

After giving up on finding an empty cove (they were overrun with nudists), we sprawled on a nearly-empty pebble beach at Amoudi for the next several hours to read, wade, headstand, and sift through the colorful pebbles.
