Summer showed up yesterday. To be sure, we had a hot day in Athens about a month ago and a hot day on Hydra last week but yesterday this place finally felt like a beach and today, with a high in the mid-90s, we took our first swims in the Gulf. The water’s still pretty cool but there are warm spots floating through so it’s not too hard to bob like a…half-empty beer bottle or a semi-inflated wine-skin while taking in the streaks and spots of snow remaining on Parnassos. Everyone who made the trek from Athens this weekend is on the beach, and so are we. But not in this photo.
