People say Sarakinko Beach on the Greek island of Milos is the closest you can get to standing on the moon without leaving earth. The blindingly white sand has been hardened into ghoulish shapes over years of being whipped by the brisk maltemi winds. The ever-present winds on the beach are so deafening that you cannot have a conversation with someone 10 feet away from you. The other-worldly site, accompanied by the inability to speak, makes seeing this beach a near religious experience.

I often return there in my dreams.

What are you up to this weekend? We’re driving from the top of North Carolina’s Outerbanks to the bottom tomorrow, with a barbecue pit stop halfway. I hope you are savoring the last days of summer. Meanwhile, a few links for your Friday:
