The fast ferry system in Greece is very efficient and a pleasure to be on. As we approached Santorini, it appeared like a glimmering jewel against the deep blue sea. The views were breathtaking.

We were pretty sure that mom said he was working at her families other restaurant.The next day we went to the “old town” where there is a working archeological site enclosed in a building. The site is the ancient city of Akrotiri and is the most important prehistoric settlement found anywhere in the Eastern Mediterranean.
On the way to the old town, we stopped at a local bakery where we met this man, a Maori from New Zealand. We could not help but notice his tattoos, all of them representing something significant to him and his culture.
On our return, we stopped at a winery; after all, we needed refreshment after a day of exploring. We had a wine sampling. You could choose 6 or 12 sample tastings. I felt I could only handle six. Then of course, off to the store to purchase wine. I could not believe that this land which looked as though it was only rock, could produce such fine wine.
Santorini is very beautiful but after seeing the main tourist sites, we felt it was time to move on.
