Koukounaries postcards ...

Its a lovely beach, but only a few get to see its real beauty ...

In springtime, you can sit by the waters edge, looking out over an azure blue sea. Small fish jumping from the water as some predator below seeks a tasty lunch. Its so silent you can hear dogs barking some kilometers away. Conversations carry across the water ...

Back in the 50's you could not give the land away - who wants to be by a beach ...

One enterprising man, did that and opened a taverna by the beach, here are some photos (1956) of the days before mass tourism. I wonder what he would think, were he to visit us here today ...






Now when would you rather visit ? Then or now ? ...
