Our last day on Santorini and we awoke to another glorious day so it was hard to leave. After another delicious breakfast served to us by our gracious hosts we thought we'd better have one last walk to take in the views and walk off a little of our breakfast. Impossible to walk it all off. It was tortilla and some kind of pastry as well as grapes and cheese accompanied by the freshly squeezed orange juice and black brewed coffee. We had to be out of our room by ...
... and the walk back down to the beautiful village of Filoti, took almost six hours, and we did it with four young Americans, from Virginia.
Another bus trip took us to the village of Apierantho, picture perfect in every detail, derelict windmills on the ridges, white cube houses stepping down the hills, connected by tiny narrow alleys, and still linked to neighbouring villages by donkey trails. ...

Managed a cold draught pint in Lotto. Purchased our ferry tickets for Syros and the last leg to Kos.
Got the bus back to Prokopios and spent a little more time on the beach. Had to rescue Antonis`s boat as young lad from Fotis taverna had pushed it in!
We had a butty on the balcony and then forced a cake down my neck at the Golden Beach cafe.
