blessing of the holy waters

today was the blessing of the holy waters an annual religious event on the Greek Orthodox calendar and one which we attend every year.. this years event was spectacular as usual.. we arrived a lil late and didnt get to see the moment when the holy cross was tossed out to sea and a bunch of brave young guys dive in to retrieve it.. the eventual retrievee said to be blessed for the remainder of the year.. nevertheless.. we did get to dance the zorba.. picnic.. swim.. (the water was beautiful) and bake..

These videos below are of an amazing bouzouki player that I just had to video.. the way he played just drew the crowd in.. and towards the end when everyone was leaving I found a quiet moment to reflect and video what was around me.. I hope you enjoy..
