Warming up with some Naxos beach memories

Share

I kept wishing I could hop on a plane and head to Greece, but of course that wasn’t possible (direct flights from Toronto to Athens ceased operating around the time the hurricane hit — the normal end-of-season cutoff). SoI went back to my computer and combed through my folders of Naxos photos, hoping that would warm me up and make me forget — for at least a little while — that winter is on its way. It worked!

In case  you’re feeling a bit of a chill yourself, here’s some Naxos beach photos that might put you in a warmer state of mind.
