Touring Greece Like a Local Part 2

Just outside of  Thessaloniki  within the first hour we had to pull over so I could snag a fresh fig right off a tree!  by far, hands down my favorite fruit ever! I live for summers in Greece just so I can pick the figs!

And then this little guy and all his friends walked by!   Most of the land is full of farmers, its not uncommon to see a herd of goats or donkeys walking by the road.

And then finally... The Beach!! We are here in the town and area of  Afytos, Halkidiki, Greece.  About an hour from the big city. On the first of the three legs or peninsulas of the Halkidiki region. The pristine water steals your eyes and feels like a warm bath you never want to get out of.  All of a sudden there is this guy walking the beach selling the Koulouri and donuts!!!   Koulouri is a traditional Greek sesame round bread we like to eat in the mornings with our frappe or just because. Sweet bread. Yes please.  It won't spoil and it only costs about 1euro so I took one for later too.

The entire region of Halkidiki is filled with small beach coves and hip little towns you can drive all up and down throughout the day to visit, camp or stop for dinner.  This cove was perfect for us as it didn't have many people.  We love to find spots that have few to no one at all.

This was the perfect afternoon of mild people watching, tons of swimming and then right when you're feeling like "I'm so hungry but how can we leave this picturesque spot" .
