17nth of June
The dreamy sunset in Petani Beach!

We ordered our coffee to the already familiar to us café/bar La Vida Loca and started working immediately.
We kept taking photos and videos of the magnificent landscape which was composed by the cloudy sky and the eternal Ionian Sea which was spread in front of our mesmerized eyes.
We knew that we had to be patient, since the photos and the videos of a sunset on a cloudy sky is not an easy task at all!  
 


But, this dreamy and magic place compensates, by all means!
It was worth waiting for the perfect shot, after all!

The scattered grey clouds were initially hiding the sun and the blue sea had taken a silver shade, while the rocks looked almost black…
 


But then, the dark colors gave their place to the violet, to the purple and to the crimson and when finally the sun emerged through the clouds, the beach became rosy, the sea sapphire and the sky was painted in a glorious golden color...
 


One can’t describe this exquisite sunset with words…
But there are the videos and the photos which can talk perfectly about it…  

When the blazing sun made a pathway to the sea stretching to the far horizon and the deep purple dusk started falling, there came for us the moment to enjoy a fresh Campari and to let ourselves once more in the magic of this beach, which we consider as one of the most beautiful not only in Kefalonia but in the whole Greece too…
 


We left Petani and started driving towards Porto Athera.
We had chosen to dine in the idyllic fish tavern “ Gialos”, where we had enjoyed beautiful “meze “ with ouzo and had also experienced the discreet hospitality of Maria and her son Gerasimos.

Fresh Fish in the tavern “Gialos”

This time in addition to the fantastic feta cheese and the nice salad of the place, we tried a large fresh croaker and also a yummy sea bream, both fished by Maria’s husband with spear gun, French fries and an excellent homemade burger made by local meat. 

After our splendid dinner, we said good bye to Maria and to her family and returned to our guesthouse.
Another magnificent day in Paliki had reached its end…
