On the ship until 2.30 when we left by tender for the short service to Mykonos, one of Greece's most popular tourist islands. Here we wandered for an hour with Cindy & Mike before grabbing a well deserved beer in a cafe overlooking the famous windmills, formerly used to grind the island’s grain.

Near the temples and statue of Apollo are also statues of lions that the ancients had dedicated to the god. After trekking through the ruined city, we made our way up to the museum. In the museum are statues, mosaics, and other precious remains from Delos. One of my personal favorites was a mosaic of Athena in full battle garb speaking ...
