Santorini. The word alone conjures up images of utopia. We were only there for about six hours, but they were among my favourite moments this year. The island is enticing to a photographer - so very beautiful! We took so many photos that day, that I have decided to give this little island jaunt its own blog post.

|These are grape vines on what looks like the surface of the moon.|
|The donkeys are led down the steps for their next journey up.|
|I named my donkey Benny - because he had jets.|
|Melanie captured this picture of us. I really like it. By the way, my shirt, purchased in Athens, was inspired by Santorini.|
|Our lunch location - not bad.|

Oia is small but it is chock full of stunning vistas and charming shops and restaurants.I LOVED being there, walking the winding pathways to see its beauty from various angles. The photos I have attached don't fully capture its glory. Between us, Bob and I took hundreds of shots. As usual, his are better than mine.
Too soon, we returned to the bus and made one last stop on our way to the harbour. From this location (Thira) high above the water, we took a group shot.
Then it was time to board the hydrofoil and return to Crete. If I return to Santorini someday, there is a chair waiting for me.

|So long Santorini|
|Imagine me here.|
