Sunrise at Daios Cove
I decided that these pictures deserved a little post of their own as they are some of my favourite photos I've ever taken - and I've taken A LOT of photos in my time. Plus I was desperate to share something from our amazing holiday. I'm halfway through writing a bumper post with all the details about our stay at Daios Cove and what we did with Bella in terms of her routine but for now I have this mini post with these photos.
When I'm on holiday I always like to watch the sunset, preferably with a cocktail hand. This was a little ritual I got into with my best friend on our many holidays together and we'll always ask each other for a sunset photo when we go away separately. Daios Cove is on the wrong side of the Crete for sunset so instead I had to settle for sunrise, what a hardship! I had seen online how spectacular the sunrise is, so I checked the forecast was to be clear, set my alarm for 5.45am and walked the short distance to the infinity pool as I thought this would be the best setting. As you can see it did not disappoint.
It was so magical, I actually think it's more special than sunset in some ways, because it's always so quiet and serene being up with the birds. I only took a couple of pictures (some on timer with me in) and just sat there in silence and watched it, a memory for ever. I then went back to the room and slept for about another two hours until her ladyship woke up, holiday heaven.
I hope you like the photos as much as I do!
