Giving it all : Wild coves & beaches in northern Ikaria


…..

super splash ikaria«Oh, what mortal place have I reached this time? Are they cruel and merciless savages, or god-fearing people, generous to strangers? The noise in my ears sounded like girls shouting, nymphs who haunt the high mountain passes, tributary streams, and grassy meadows. Am I near creatures with human speech? Let me look, and see.»
(The Odyssey)

There you are, I’m done with my secret Ikarian coves. Some say I shouldn’t have given them out, that I should have kept the secret etc. I thought so myself years ago. But I have changed my mind. Though these places are marked in the latest map as «swimming spots» ≅ the fact is that they are hardly accessible to the average summer visitor O_o So I doubt if you meet anybody there but an occasional cow or goat. Nevertheless, be respectful and careful and let others enjoy them too. Check out a few related old entries of our blogs if you wish. We have been going there since 2007 and as long as we can, we will still go! Who knows, some day a shipwrecked Odysseus may land at our feet.

In Eleni's blog : Αφιερωμένο στην Αθηνά και σε κανέναν άλλον! In my blog: Εξερευνώντας την ακτογραμμή, ξαφνικά ανακαλύψαμε μια θερμοπηγή! - As we were exploring the coastline, all of a sudden we discovered a warm spring in the sea! In my blog : 'Ημαστε στη παραλίτσα της Αγίας Παρασκευής (προστάτιδος της υγείας των οφθαλμών) στη βορειοανατολική Ικαρία. In my blog : καλό καλοκαίρι σε όλους και όλες! In my blog : Back to land, near the sea, inside the sea, hidden paths, hidden places. In my blog : Unexpected discoveries inside an unbelievably beautiful secret cove and mountain gorge in Ikaria.

..🙂

HAVE A GREAT WILD SUMMER!

This is all for the time being and I think it’s more than enough. If you open the links to the pictures and you are patient, you may find more! As for the real places, I am sorry that I can’t take you by the hand and take you there. You will have to find them on your own. I am aware that this dry list is lacking personal touch. You can get a bit of that in older entries of our blogs, for example at :

Τι πιστεύουμε



~

Αν θες να το μάθεις, βρίσκεται στο «What I believe» της Ελένης.

…… I believe in the power of the imagination to remake the world, to release the truth within us, to hold back the night, to transcend death, to charm motorways, to ingratiate ourselves with birds, to enlist the confidences of madmen. I believe in my own obsessions, in the beauty of the car crash, in the peace of the submerged forest, in the excitements of the deserted holiday beach, in the elegance of automobile graveyards, in the mystery of multi-storey car parks, in the poetry of abandoned hotels. . . . I believe in the death of tomorrow, in the exhaustion of time, in our search for a new time within the smiles . . . . . . I believe in madness, in the truth of the inexplicable, in the common sense of stones, in the lunacy of flowers, in the disease stored up for the human race by the Apollo astronauts. I believe in nothing.…….

Αν θες να μάθεις τα νέα μας, ήμαστε καλά,  διάγουμε περίπου στην ίδια ατμόσφαιρα

Καλύτερα δες slideshow γιατί βαριέμαι να γράφω κι εσύ να διαβάζεις


Αν θες, γράψε σχόλιο να με ρωτήσεις.Για την ώρα η είδηση είναι ότι αποφασίσαμε να ψηφίσουμε στις δημοτικές εκλογές

παράταξη αυτόνομη τοπική που έχει σήμα τη σπείρα

Επίσης μπήκε και η άνοιξη. Αυτά ήταν τα νέα μας. Σας χαιρετούμε.

 Ακόμα Ικαρία, μέσα φθινοπώρου 2011.

,,
Μια μέρα που ένιωθα να μ’ έχουν εγκαταλείψει όλα
και μια μεγάλη θλίψη να πέφτει αργά στην ψυχή μου,
τράβηξα, κει που περπατούσα, μες στα χωράφια
χωρίς σωτηρία, ένα κλωνάρι άγνωστου θάμνου.
Το ‘κοψα και το ‘φερα στο απάνω χείλι μου.
Ευθύς αμέσως κατάλαβα ότι ο άνθρωπος είναι αθώος.
Το διάβασα σ’ αυτή τη στυφή από αλήθεια ευωδιά
τόσο έντονα που πήρα να προχωρώ το δρόμο της
μ’ ελαφρύ βήμα και καρδιά ιεραπόστολου.
Ώσπου, σε μεγάλο βάθος, μου έγινε συνείδηση πια
ότι όλες οι θρησκείες λέγανε ψέματα.
Ναι, ο Παράδεισος δεν ήταν μια νοσταλγία.
Ούτε, πολύ περισσότερο, μια ανταμοιβή.
Ήταν ένα δικαίωμα.

(Οδυσσέα ΕλύτηΟ Μικρός Ναυτίλος”)

Thank you My Lady for this *shine*. My blog dies, but it dies in glory.

Oh baby let it die. We have come down to the basics. I also feel there is very little else to say. Unless of course we fly to a separate reality. But on 2nd thought aren’t we already there?

Agrimi mou, I still haven’t read most of your blogs and now I am too busy and can’t do it. Please, save them somehow! There are gems! They say there is a way…

It’s the colors, dogamit! Working out on the colors. If the colors don’t work nothing works.

Update:
This post seemed ahead of its time. We were ignorant that we created a tradition. Seven years later P.Z. posted the following amazing u/w pictures on Flickr. The last one won a good place in a famous calendar. I blogged about that quiet victory in my «An U/W shot from Ikaria in TSDR Calendar 2016»
