Today was the first day we woke up before noon. Yesterday I must have slept half the day after waking at noon, until finally I got the energy to drive to the beach at Pisses (yes that is the name of the beach) and swim for an hour. The beach had all of three people on it and even though outside the bay in the open sea the waves were pretty big it was calm. Compared to the day before when we went to the beach at Orchos and not only was it too rough to go swimming but a winter
storm had completely transformed it from a rocky beach that some of our friends avoided, to a beautiful sandy beach that looks like the Carribean.
Apart from that there is not much to report from my first island stay of 2011 except maybe what I had for dinner every night which would probably bore you. But I can report that Andrea's nephew Stephanos' restaurant in Korissia is excellent, as good as anything on Sifnos and reasonably priced. Rumour has it that famed chef Aglia Kremezi assisted with the menu. Actually it is more than a rumour because the first thing I saw on the menu and ordered was the regga salata
(herring salad) that she has served several times at her house and which I have even made myself. Besides the usual fresh fish and local meat there are half a dozen amazing salads and the smoked salmon rolls which only lack bagels to be a meal you would find in NY or LA. So if you make it to Kea ever be sure to eat at Magazes in the port.
