Set sail with Honor Beach

While re-reading my last couple of blogs, I have noticed that cocktails seem to be a recurrent theme. So I thought I would try and avoid alcohol in this one and think about more practical holiday issues such as what to do, where to go and what to pack. When my husband and I were dating, our holidays all seemed to be about sailing. He was very keen and I was very keen on him!  We did visit some stunning places, with our first proper holiday being the British Virgin Islands.  From Jost Van Dyke, to rum punch (sorry, I wasn't going to mention that but they were delicious) at Willy T's -  the whole trip was amazing. I can thoroughly recommend it for...

As sun and summer seems to be at the forefront of my mind these days, the time may be coming for Honor Beach to have a launch party to help bring on the silly season.

I also have a little secret to share - Glyfada Beach Villas.  I discovered this gem of a resort (well cluster of little houses) a couple of years ago while walking along Monodendri Beach. It is run by a charming husband and wife...

And so it begins..

As I sit here at my desk waiting for some final pictures to come in, I am taking a moment to reflect on the time it has taken to get to this point at Honor Beach. It really started when trying to find a beach bag large enough to fit all my towels and the paraphernalia that comes with having two small kids and going to the seaside. There were some lovely, pretty ones around, just not particularly big! So I began to think about how I could make my own.  I then also started to notice that as I got (a little) older, the beach collections I had once loved and saved up to buy - just didn't seem to fit with...
