How I love the sea front of my city

Rain or shine....
...the Thessaloniki sea front looks beautiful....
...easy to reach...for us who live nearby it is only five minutes' walk away and it has a lot to offer....
...ample space to walk,jog, ride your bike, walk your dog, let your children play, fish...
...amazing views...
If you are a dog then you find lots of furry friends to play with....(unless they are all gone!)
 ...if you are a human you can even have the chance to watch street artists performing....
 ...you can make soap bubbles....
 ...and take all kinds of pictures....

 ...if you are a toddler you can play with fearless puppies....
 ...you can watch wonderful sunsets....

...you can attend various entertainement activities like painting....
 ...look at photographic exhibitions....
 ...eat a snack....
 ...visit the lily pond....
 ...and see the koi fish....
 ...the turtles....
 ....the frogs....

 ....and try to catch the ...frogs?....
 ...and see beauty in all its forms...
 ...and colours....
 ...and shapes....
 and admire the sea and the sky....
....and have coffee...
...and meet friends....
and.....love this city once again....
(This blogpost is written after a wonderful sunny weekend spent at the sea front and in the hope that the rest of the sea front which is being renovated will be given to the public before summer!)

αν φτιάξουν (επιτέλους) και το υπόλοιπο κομμάτι
θα είναι φανταστικά!
ατελείωτες βόλτες πλάι στη θάλασσα!

You are very fortunate to live so close to the ocean!! 8*)

I was very close also, until I moved in 2001!! Now it is a 45 minute drive. Not too bad, though!! 8*)

I love your photos and your lovely Barca!! She is growing so fast!! 8*)
