Sea’s Of Blue-Raspberry Slushy

Tuesday Oct 4th –

We said goodbye to our Villa Levante  room

and went back to the Tranakas Bakery for breakfast.

It was enjoyed once again and then we had to say goodbye to that place too.

Travel is an awesome adventure but also pretty sad when you think of all the new places and things you find to like and then just as quickly have to leave for forever probably.

But we had something else to go discover, and that was the iconic shipwreck beach!

An hour long drive was taken through mountain roads and the terrain here is kind of a hard one to explain.
Not as green as somewhere tropical but not un green either😜
I think the terrain is similar to Arizona in some ways, rocky and hilly but with way more trees of course.
Mostly cedar and olive, the cedar giving off the bright happy green and the olive trees adding to the rugged look.

Lots of low bushes and shrubs as well.
A few of the fields we drove by had sooo many stones scattered in them, it looked like that’s what they were trying to grow 🙈

Goats and donkeys are randomly tied to trees to graze, cats and dogs run freely and once we got to the lookout for the shipwreck there were multiple little stands set up with people selling homemade honey and olive oil.

We bought some lovely smelling (hopefully as good tasting) oregano olive oil and some honey for Mike.
Also it’ll come in handy whenever I decide to try my version of the baked feta dishes we enjoyed here 😉👌🏻


So, shipwreck beach.

Along our travels I’ve discovered that most highly photographed tourist destinations are usually greatly elaborated.
Though nice and still awesome to see, the photos seen prior leave you feeling a little less than satisfied once you yourself get to see the location in person.

Not so with this one.
I’ve been blessed to be able to go a lot of places in my life but never before had I seen water that blue.

My best description of it is that it looked like the fake, bright blue color of blue-raspberry slushy was poured into the sea and didn’t dissolve even a little 💙



The height of the cliff side you walk along to get the photos wasn’t the most comfortable arrangement for me though, as I’m rather un thrilled by heights 😁


You can take a boat to the beach itself but with the amount of people on the beach and packed onto the boats we were fine with seeing it from up top.
Especially after hearing the music from ‘The Titanic’ playing on one of the ships 🙈🛳
Not the time or the place captain 😏

We hung out there for a bit, taking pictures and drinking in as much blue as our eyes could hold before continuing on to our next destination.

Villa Agostenga is no monumental tourist attraction, but it wasn’t one bit hard on the eyes either 😍

The link will show the place better than my photos can but it was massive and private and ours for three days 😏

We were to early for check in so we went into town and ate at the Ship Inn

once again and also got some food packed up for us to heat up for supper later.
A grocery store was also visited and we did so well! 😄
Only water and a few necessities were purchased, no 70€ souvenir basket this time.
That may have had to do more with the smell of the store then our desire for food though, cheese and fish mixing together don’t make for the most attractive buying atmosphere 😁

Once we got into the villa it was a simple matter of luggage being dropped and poolside chairs being occupied 😌☀️💦

The pool was also tested and it was immediately apparent it was not heated 😬
But hey, can’t have everything 😉😋

Eventually food was reheated and eaten from the comfort of the couch as evening fell upon us.

Hello humans 😊 This is where you learn about me I suppose, though anyone reading this right now most likely knows all the boring details ;) I am Jessica Rose Peters-Hagenouw. (Always thought I'd be able to pronounce my married name but hey, life doesn't go as we plan.) June 11, 1995, tis the day Robert and Bonnie Peters received the most adorable, amazing, wonderful, surprise 3rd child they could have dreamed of. Speaking of being the third child, I have an older brother and an older sister. Both of whom are married and have wee little families of their own, making 'Aunty Jess' another name I go by. I grew up and have lived all of my years up till November 2015 in Saskatchewan, Canada. Making summers that are extremely short and winters that never end, vast open spaces, northern lights, unthinkable amounts of mosquitoes, lakes, forests and people waving to you on the grid road all different things that mean = Home. But Home is not where I'll be for some time. My husband is a Dutchman, living in Europe. Therefore I too have been living in Europe for the last few months. The reason I started this little blog/journal/writing thing, is to document a bit of my "whole new world," for those at home who wont be awake at 3:00 am wanting to hear about how I couldn't find flour at the grocery store. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek into my little life 😊

  1. Yep that blue looks like jello. I think I may need to experience this place on my next visit. Forget the castles 😁
