Babies First Swim at the Beach

View Larger Map

On Sunday afternoon, we went with Paris to the beaches of Halkidiki, specifically to the little beach town of Psakoudia (see map above), which is about 1 hour and 15 minutes from our house, and just a few minutes away from the famous Monastery of the Annunciation in Ormylia.

The beaches don't get really crowded until July, so we had plenty of space to spread out.

Amazingly, the babies didn't try (too much) to eat the sand. They did, however, make some funny faces upon tasting the water.

Here's Pelagia walking Benjamin out into the ocean for the first time. Benjamin was the most unsure about the whole experience. Phoebe, on the other hand, loved it.

Keeping cool in the water.

Swimming works up an appetite. Here the babies are enjoying some cookies as they dry off.
