Beachscapade, My Island Getaway!

There's nothing like the cool beach breeze, walking barefoot on the sand, and listening to the gush of the rushing waves that really soothes my soul. The trip to the beach was not our usual 30 minute drive. This time, we had a long 2 hours drive to the beach. We rode a barge to get to the other side of an island and from there we drove up and around scary cliffs. We finally got to the place we were headed to and I was really amazed by the view. We stayed for a few hours at this one beach house which reminded me so much of the houses in Santorini, Greece. Sadly, I failed to take a picture of the beach house because I was too excited to hit the beach.

That is a picture of me and my cousin Mikey under the sign the says "Ayahay" which means RELAX. The place was most definitely relaxing.

Time to EAT!
Shrimps! My favorite seafood! Yummmo!
Poor piggy. Roast pig. I know it looks yucky, but I swear it was really really good. When it comes to food I'm always willing to give everything a try. =)

We were so excited to go to the beach that we forgot to pack utensils! We had to dine like a cave man and use our hands.

Cupcakes for dessert! Nom Nom Nom

Sitting on these plastic chairs and facing such a pretty view is just pure heaven.

Wondering why there's no one else on this amazing beach? It is a private beach resort which my cousin bought late last year for his wife who's always dreamed of Santorini. What a lovely surprise!

There's this floating raft that was located in the middle of the beach. We wanted to get on that raft but the probably was none of us knew how to swim. hahahaha

The beach was very rocky and I ended up going home with a bloody toe. Before I could get to the water I stepped on rocks and lots of rocks. It wasn't till I was in a bit deep that my toe could finally step on sand. But that's alright, I had a blast and the bloody toe was definitely worth it.
I definitely need to think about getting a pair of aqua shoes next time I come down to this place.

After hours at the beach, it was finally time to go home and call it a day. Mom prepared more yumminess for us.

Have a great weekend everyone!

I love the look of Santorini and would love to go. I love the look of calm peaceful beaches as well and this looks like a great place for a picnic. As for eating with your hands, that's what picnics are all about.
