Third time’s a charm! I was finally able to swim in Lake Sevan. The first two times I visited were way too cold to even think about getting in, but what a perfect day today was to take a plunge! Some looming grey clouds threatened rain, but the sun defeated them in the end, enticing us into the water with its warm rays.
The beach in our area was narrow, but we had just enough room to sprawl. Directly behind the beach was a wooded picnic area. The covered tables and grills were all claimed by eager visitors. In true Armenian fashion, each crowd was barbecuing meat and vegetables and blasting danceable tunes.
And just like that, it was time to wrap it up and head home.
