My Captured Moment, Out At Sea

For this weeks my captured moment I am sharing a wonderful family moment from last week. Every moment is special when we are all together, even when they are screaming at each other over a football grrrr. Life is so so busy, making these little moments mean everything, having that down time to chill out together.

My Captured Moment, Out At Sea A

After a delicious breakfast we all headed down to the beach for a family walk, and on a mission to ride on the pedalos. As soon as Joe had found out they had pedalos at Ikos Oceania he was desperate to try them out. He was dying to slide down the huge yellow slides into the sea.

It was a gorgeous morning and although the sky was hazy you could feel that heat pushing through the haze, of what promised to be a beautiful hot day ahead of us. And being quite early meant the beach was still wonderfully quiet.

There is something so chilled about walking along the beach with your family, especially on a hot hazy morning, and the boys were in such high spirits as we made out way along the beach to the pedalos.

I have to say the sea was colder than expected, but as Greece is only starting to wake from winter it is hardly surprising. Once we had all managed to clamber in Chris and Joe pedaled us out into the ocean. It felt so tranquil, just us on this tiny little bright yellow vessel bobbing up and down watching the shore, and the fish swimming bellow us, catching sight of the odd jellyfish.

Joe very quickly decided that maybe it wasn’t warm enough to have a dip, but Jack and I sat with our feet in the spray as Chris and Joe did all the work. Enjoying the view and listening to Chris and Joe bicker over who was the better at steering and who should steer. Of course Joe was if you like going around in circles ha ha.

For that precious 20 minutes we sat, laughed and chilled out in the middle of the ocean with a stunning 360-degree view. The shame of it is, the very next day Joe made the decision that he was in fact brave enough to take a dip, but the sea was a little too choppy for water sports. However he was happy with the promise that we would return to Ikos Oceania to take the dip on a pedalo soon.

    Lovely pictures, Sarah. The colour of the sea is amazing! Shame it was a little too cold for a swim. We love riding on a pedalo too. We rented one on our last holiday in a Center Parc and had so much fun with it. Our little one would have loved this one with its big yellow slide :-). #MyCapturedMoment

    What a great way to spend family time. I love how hazy the sky looks, and the colors of the water are perfect. Also, what a neat little pedal boat!

    I can definitely vouch for the sea being cold as I jumped in from our pedalo. and the kids were up and down the slide lol. We have never been out on a pdealo before, and we too loved how relaxing it was, just bobbing along in the sea. Brave to take your camera though Sarah. I was too scared of my iPhone falling in the sea x
