Between high seasons is my favorite time. The tourists have gone home. The surge of temporary workers has receded. The skeleton crew at the restaurants are the full-timers and owner/managers. The service is slower and less manic, but everyone knows the menu and has tasted all the dishes. People have the time and space to chat, and it’s not about turning over tables as quickly as possible.
The clouds have a different feel after the long summer, and the sea is no longer inviting you in. The evenings and early mornings have a bite reminding you that autumn is coming. Breathe deeply. Enjoy.
