pebble beach

July 8, 2021

It’s not that there aren’t sandy beaches in Greece, there are, but the most beautiful ones are a mass of pebbles. Walking on them feels like an intense hot stone massage for the feet. Most tourists prefer sand –– it’s easier –– so pebble beaches are often empty. And the water is clearer because there’s no silt being whipped up waves, swimmers and jet skiers. As a child, my feet were leather hard at summers end. I always travelled back to England with at least a dozen pebbles in my bag, keepsakes from every beach I explored. Artist, Alan Magee is most famous for his beautiful paintings of pebbles. They’re so detailed that they look like photographs. I look at them and feel hot pebbles underneath my feet as I hop towards the water’s edge.
