Greek Evening

Go to Greece.  Get to the islands.  The Greek Islands are gems floating in the sea.  This is a shot from the Northern tip of Santorini after parking my car and heading for dinner.  It’s a series of small outdoor restaurants 2 feet above the sea and selling only grilled fish and other seafood.  The air is warm and salty.  The music is greek.  The feta is on everything and the fried calamari with lemon is as fresh as it gets.  Dining outside in the greek islands is one of those simple experiences that hold more memory than any product you could buy.  When the sun goes down everyone heads up the road into Oia for the Greek version of a passeggiata.   Look closely and you can see the people dining.  Click the photo for a larger view.

Dockside in Ios

Leaving Ios Greece headed toward Athens.  Came across this great little greek fishing boat that brings in the daily catch.

Cliff View of Red Beach

Made our way down to Red Beach on the island of Santorini.  We rented a little zip around car and decided to find this famous beach which look more like something out of Mars.  It’s a short trek by foot around a small cliff and worth the visit.  The water is nice and clear and nice and cold.

Was walking the small roads of Oia on the island of Santorini and this is the view you get as the roads twist between, around, and even above the whitewashed buildings.
