We are heading back to Athens today. Alex leaves early as the
wind has whipped up over night and it's not going to be that much fun on the
water.. and it isn't. We lose a pillow in the process of heading back to the
The waves splash on board soaking us all in the
process. We end up putting in the sails up and sailing in the hopes of riding
the waves better, I think. By the end of it we are all soaked ...
... goers got off, so we did too! We had the nicest time walking around looking at the boats and doing some serious people watching. We were surprised to see many people perched on rocks….any place they could find. It was very busy even when we arrived at 10.30. There were some awesome boats but also many that had seen better days! And I was completely and totally reassured that my 'big mumma' bikinis were going to be just fine. Boy oh ...

Even without being online, the GPS feature on the phone shows exactly where you are on a pre-downloaded map. It is then very easy ...
... good at reading signs around us so I just threw on my music and jogged back after we got out of the metro. I like traversing the streets on my own. I made it back in no time flat and got on my computer to write everything down. Again I don't think that I got everything. How can I? There is too much to write about. Even after writing for an hour I know I missed so much! But hopefully you got the gist!
If you are reading this, know that I am safe, and having the time of my life! ...
