May 1st long weekend

Thank you friends and followers for your comments in my last blogpost. It seems others too feel likewise!
So I will just go on ...my way!
May 1st was off school of course and since it was a Friday we took the chance to leave the city.
On Friday we went to my brother's beach house.
On the way I worked on the Stitch Enigma I want to take part in. You can find all about it in the side of my blog.
It was a glorious day!
When we arrived at their place you couldn't really tell if it was Clean Monday as there were kites in the sky...
...or if it was Easter as people were barbecueing everywhere...
...or if it was summer as people were at the beach bars and some brave ones were even swimming!
We walked around...
spotting beautiful flowers...
I even found a gorgeous stone filled with quartz....
Of course the men barbecued under our scrutiny (and Barca's scrutiny of course!)
Those sausages especially the yellow ones with chicken and cheese were terrific!
The views of fields covered in poppies were wonderful!
And some had to be gathered!
Afterwards we went to our beach house to enjoy the sunset...


and the moon.
The next day we did some house chores like putting an old coffee table from the city house in its place
but we also walked the beach enjoying the view of the snowcovered Olympus opposite us......
We of course collected some sea glass....


We also found lots of beautifully painted stones that probably tourists left behind.
But there was a guard guarding them so we didn't take any!
Beautiful flowers were everywhere at the beach!

and around in the fields.



Barca made a new friend...a huge gentle giant stray dog we were almost ready to take with us....
But we had to return to the city and this is what we returned to, another gorgeous sunset in Thessaloniki.
Sunday was beautiful too.
The sky was painted in white brush strokes...
We were hungry and we sat at To Elliniko! It was great as usual!We had some steamed mussels and some caramelised mushrooms along with tsipouro of course.
One of my mussels was pregnant!
It was a great weekend...when weekends are like that I feel like a tiny flower in this world, a happy little flower...
Good night!
