This is our latest “home away from home,” for the next two weeks, and after being on the steady go for three weeks, we are both ready to take a breather!
I would liken our stay to be similar to a time-share setting, but we rented this apartment in the complex, from a private owner. We have everything we need to enjoy the surroundings. We can wash our own clothes and cook for ourselves. However, the complex boasts a restaurant. The stay includes a private beach with umbrellas for shade. Back at the unit, there is a large swimming pool, too.
We are in an area, called the Albania Riviera. There are many miles of coastline, with beaches. It is quite beautiful to be surrounded by mountains and ocean.
By all appearances, one would think COVID19 does not exists on the Riviera. It’s the weekend, and the beaches and restaurants are crowded! No masks, and no social distancing. The music is turned up and families and couples are having a blast!
Today, our preference is to stain side in the A/C of our apartment, where there is also peace and quiet. The big guy is “out for the count,” enjoying a nice nap. We will see what the beach looks like after the weekend. It might be less crowded. It isn’t the virus that concerns us, but Europeans are heavy smokers, so it’s a deal breaker for us.
We do see signs for Scuba Diving, so we might check this out.
