Olive Grove by the Sea

Laconiko, Greece

This is a story about love, sacrifice, commitment, honest hard work and passion!

Our olive grove lies just a few meters from the sea. As I approach, I smell herbs, wild flowers and fresh cut grass.

My father, Vasilios, wraps his arms around me and greets me with a kiss. We embrace deeply and then quickly inspect each other to observe any minute changes that may have occurred during all the months we have been apart. He smiles softly and tells me how much he missed me.

My brother and I have just arrived from the United States to help out with the olive harvest, which has always been our tradition.

We pick olives by day and recharg our batteries by night, while toasting bread slices over a wood fire, then pouring on the freshly made olive oil. This is our life during harvest. We love what we do!
