New Moon at MarathonNew Moon at Marathon Last time I shared some sunsets over Greece, so I thought I would start today with the new moon rising over the sea looking away from Marathon with the sun having set behind me and the moon rising across the bay. The light pink turned brighter before turning orange.

But the setting sun a few days earlier made the water play with colour:

I have been swimming late in the evening to enjoy these glorious waters, still body temperature warm that just lap you up. Simply divine! The fabled jellyfish of Marathon Bay have stayed away so far this August, but I may be tempting fate saying so. While not as vicious as many, they can still give an unpleasant sting.

Just a few miles away, Lake Marathon, a reservoir which provides much of the water for the surrounding area has provided some spectacular views as the sun set behind the distant mountains:

What a glorious backdrop to a lovely restaurant! Well worth a visit!
