Mykonos—With a Side Trip

IMG_2535 Today we have been anchored in the harbor at Mykonos for our final port of call before disembarking tomorrow in Athens.  It’s hard to believe that our two weeks are almost over.

After tendering ashore, we met our guide for the trip to the island of Delos, a 30-minute ferry ride.  Delos is a small uninhabited island but is crammed full of ancient Greek ruins.  Although it was a bright sunny day, the winds were fierce, and we huddled together in our hooded jackets as we listened to our knowledgeable guide describe what we were seeing.


The ferry ride back to Mykonos was more than a little rough, and LBeau got a little green around the gills.  However after a lunch of Coke and bread (the rest of us enjoyed a delicious fish soup), he rallied, and we spent an hour or so exploring this seaside village of white stucco houses, shops and churches.



The answer to yesterday’s trivia question, “The best dog is the __________ because it feeds the hand that bites it” is, of course, the hot dog.  Today’s trivia question is “What Biblical event tends to support the superstition that 13 is an unlucky number?”  Answer tomorrow.
