When I go to Paros, I realize it may not make sense to some people that I like to stay in a hotel with a swimming pool. After all, the beaches are fabulous and the sea is delicious. It’s easy to spend the entire day at the beach, set up under an umbrella, taverna nearby, camera, book, and journal to catch a passing thought. But, at the end of the day, before dinner, there is nothing better then swimming in a cool, refreshing pool. And this is where I will be in September. At the Seaview Hotel, in Drios. My friend Pat and her husband Elia have carefully and beautifully built this intimate, friendly, and lovely hotel over the past years. The pool is outstanding and I look forward to swimming in it soon. In the mean time, off to the beach here in North America.
