A TRIP TO KORASIDA IN EVIA- (Greece)
Trip Start Aug 15, 2003
56Trip End May 01, 2009
A short trip in the countryside !!
We drove to ACHLADERI, and down the beautiful beach of KORASIDA .
The tradition today is that every family makes a WREATH either from flowers from the garden, or wreaths from wild flowers - the one I prefer !!
If the weather is good - mostly it is here in Greece -, then families get down the beach or in fields having barbeques, children playing, and men drinking and eating happily. The day is spent mostly out in nature.
We visited the beautiful beach of KORASIDA in EVIA today. I wish I had taken my swimming suit along. Two or three people were swimming, although they admitted that the waters were cold !!!
I picked wild flowers and made our wreath which later on I hanged on the door of our house as the tradition says !!!
The fields were filled with all sorts of wild flowers and mostly popies.
