... baby on the way. We stopped at a taverna by an amazing beach. The food was very average, the beer was good, the water looked several shades of turquoise & quite choppy, the sand was golden and Lance got a rusty nail through his foot.

The beaches were quite gravelly, with lots of pebbles, great little taverna, and the water was so warm it was like being in a bath.
