We "finished" the rest of the island by visiting the Red Beach and having the worse coffee I have tasted so far. The BOSS, dressed in her Aussie flag bikini, was a total wimp and would not even dip her toes in the water.
So instead of going for a swim we discussed our future plans. Crete was supposed to be next on the list but I have been hearing mixed reviews; and then we thought we could see 2 or 3 other smaller islands; or alternatively head straight back to Athens and across to Rome and spend the extra week in Italy. My friend Stuart had emailed to say he had arrived in Italy - and when were we coming?
We tried unsuccessfully to get brochures about other islands from several so-called travel agents - they don't have brochures on other islands, only Santorini
At dinnertime the BOSS talked me into adventuring down the hill to a seafood restaurant. "Down the hill" is 4kms straight down - most of it on a rough gravel road, so halfway down we hitched a lift to save our knees from buckling completely.
At the bottom was the most charming little fishing village clinging to the crevices and two seafood restaurants. We choose the one with the cute waiter and although the food was superb, the service was terrible.
