This is the only way to get from a large cruise ship
into the harbour at Santorini
Our view of Celebrity X Reflection from the tender boat
A view of Santorini,
perched high on the cliffs
This looked like it could have been the remnants of a mining operation…
Or maybe not.
We were not the only “ship-in-the-bay”
There was this schooner
and this luxury motor cruiser.
Some of the buildings that surround Santorini habour come in to view
There are more than 500 steps to Santorini…
You can do them on donkey (although these beasts looked more like mules)
We started to walk, dodging poo, tourists and the aforementioned donkeys.
We eventually gave up and decided to use the cableway
Clean, non-smelly donkeys for sale
Always a church!
There are “rest stops” along the walk,
should you require them
One of the photographers from our ship.
Mark was from Durban!
There is a rest stop for the donkeys at the top of the stairs.
Then they are turned around and they make their own way down
The mannequin on the left looks like she should be in
The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
The one on the right looks like he is on medication
Blue and white.
The favourite colours of many of the Mediterranean islands we visited
One of the MANY cappuccinos that we enjoyed.
Although this one, not so much
Home time for the “beasties”
And for us…
We were told that Santorini offers wonderful sunsets.
Unfortunately, the weather did NOT play along.
Time to head East…
