... warm enough to sun ourselves on the beach, but the water was too cool to swim. The next day we packed our bags for a 2 hour ferry ride to Santorini. During breakfast wet met a nice couple from Broome Australia. They have been travelling for 3 months in Europe and we had many travel stories to share with each other.
