Crete - never been here before. So it was with much anticipation that we set off on our tour. Not as charming as Santorini, parts of it a bit like a non graffitied, tidier version of Athens - not bad but not really amazing either.

This really felt like a home cooked meal as Maria cooked the food ten feet from us in her oven and brought the salad to our table with the small glasses for wine.

My schedule is to stop on Santorini for a couple of hours--just to say I did, and because everyone will ask me if I did--then make the hop to Naxos, putting me "home" sometime this evening.

... and headed up the coast road, stopping at a couple of beaches on our way back to the hotel. The beaches were quite gravelly, with lots of pebbles, great little taverna, and the water was so warm it was like being in a bath. After the coolness of the waters in Santorini and Mykonos, it was exceptionally nice to get in and have a float about in the near-waveless water.
