Greece -- Athens and the Peloponnesos, September 2017
We spent five nights in a lovely (even, luxurious) hotel on the hill overlooking the Bay of Messina, with infinity pool and nearby beach.
View from our balcony across the Bay of Messina towards the Mani Peninsula on the other side.
Sunrise over Mani and the Bay of Messina.
We stayed at the Camvillia Resort, which has a lovely big pool.
They also have a shuttle to take you down to the beach, 10 minutes away.
What is it about doing nothing?
A floating Swede.
The beach is below a steep incline, almost a cliff. Not to worry, there is an elevator!
One more sunrise, with small clouds seeming to float above the bay.
Pool and bay.
Siv at the nice restaurant down by the beach. They have good fish...
... and this nice cat, waiting for a handout.
View of the beach from the restaurant.
Clear water of the Bay of Messina.
Moutains of Mani across the bay.
Siv found the mountains of Mani to be very mysterious in the evening.
The town of Koroni lies on a peninsula south of Camvillia.

One more sunrise.
Sunrise, bay and pool.
The sun playing on the clear water of the Bay of Messina.
There were even wavelets one day.
The highway north takes you to Athens in a few hours.
