Two beaches in one day!
We woke up early and went to Perissa beach which is a 5 minute walk from our hostel. It is a black sand beach with giant cliffs surrounding it. We swam for a while, while the powerful wind and waves pushed us along the coast. Next, we walked along the beach for a bit. With the larger black sand grains, our feet sunk deep into the sand- it was almost like walking through snow. The street is lined with lots of Greek restaurants. While walking, we spotted a sign that advertised ATV rentals so we went to check it out. We found a good deal in an ATV we can both ride so we rented it for two days.
Next we had a bit of a wild adventure. We were driving home on the ATV when we ran out of gas! And we had no idea where we were. Luckily for us, there were some kind shop assistants to point us to the nearest gas station, and one man who even gave us about half a tank of gas to get us to the station. Sure, it was a stressful few minutes, but we are trying to look at it as an adventure. We even had to climb a fence, but that may be a story for another day.
We got some delish Greek food for dinner: puff pastry with feta and honey, Greek salad, and moussaka. We also tried ouzo the traditional Greek liquor that is served over ice. You drink it slowly. It tastes like black liquorice.
