Alternate titles thought of during the beer and baklava session include:
-(Grey Hair) Girls Gone Wild
-Newly Weds and Nearly Deads
-You smell like ointment and pee (ok that one will probably only be "gotten" by Mark and Tanya)

In case you couldn't tell, it occurred to us that there are many old people vacationing in Kamari.

So the day started with the usual gourmet breakfast directed by George.  The sun was finally shining for us and we took full advantage by spending a couple of hours lounging by the pool.  We followed that up with a cool nap in the room.

Finally we were ready to hit the road up to Oia.  There are innumerable art, jewelry and knick knack shops in Oia so of course Renata was in heaven and Josh did his best to be patient.  We broke up the shopping with dinner at a cafe over looking the Caldera and spent a couple hours watching the sun set from a different cafe with a terrific view ... and terrifically high prices to match.

We then hit the road back to Kamari and decided to head out on the boulevard along the beach to see what Friday night action in Kamari was all about (this is where the beer and baklava kicks in).  There were actually a good number of people wandering about, but with a mile of bars and restaurants it did not seem too busy (I can only imagine that July and August would see the whole mile packed).  We stopped in at a lively place that had live Greek music playing for some Baklava and a beer.  It was our first Baklava of the trip and it did not disappoint.  The beer actually turned out to be a Vinsanto, but that doesn't aliterate well with Baklava.  Vinsanto is the sweet Santorini dessert wine that George introduced us to the night before.  It was during this Baklava and "Beer" (don't worry Renata had a fruit juice) that we noticed a large number of people were of the older variety.  So we spent some time thinking of funny blog names in their honour (Cacoon in the title is a reference to a scene we saw in the Green Hornet).  Despite our mockery they were living it up to the Greek music and having a good time.  After our one drink (I guess we were the lame ones and not them) we walked back to the hotel for our final snooze in Santorini.
