For this post, I will only show Mykonos. Mykonos is a lovely little island in the Aegean Sea that has been "discovered." It has become the playground of the rich and the young. Our visit was brief, and the cruise ship decided not to pay docking fees, so we were ferried to the island by tender boats.
It was ironically amusing that at this Greek island, with shipping being the top industry in Greece, they seemed to have great trouble in getting our tender boat to the dock.
The first sight--octopus hanging out to dry. It will then be beaten to tenderize it before it is cooked. Hmmm--somehow takes away my appetite for calamari.
Various tour books mention Petros the Pelican--here is he in all his multi-color glory. Not sure why, but he is the mascot for the island.
Personally, I liked the unofficial mascot much better. I spotted this little wild kitten playing with cacti. Its mother had cleverly used a niche in a stone wall as her lair, and she was there with four kittens.
This little church displayed the colors well.
More island hopping in future posts.
