For the afternoon, we got on a local bus (1.60 Euros) for a trip to the southernmost end of the island, to Red Beach. It's so-named because of the colour of the lava and gravel beach below the cliffs. In the summer, it's also the topless beach to hit if you're into that. (Like duh...) We befriended yet again 2 more semi-wild cats while waiting for the bus to come back for us; good thing we'd stocked up on DentuBones although they were supposed to be for Tony the dog when we reunited
Dinner was at a restaurant right in the heart of Fira's shops, a family-run place called Nikolas which was written up as one of the best restaurants. Unpretentious fresh food for half the price of most restaurants and where locals are known to come, too, always a good sign.
Tonight we're a bit clingy which is the way at the end of a vacation for which you've waited so long to arrive. I've felt Susan, especially so. I wanted to tell her, "Don't worry, hon. There will be more." but somehow it didn't come out. Maybe tomorrow.
I hope you have enjoyed following us these past 2 weeks. Through travel I think one sees people of other places living their lives, one meets interesting people when you put yourself out (I have done John proud, chatting up so many folks), and you get to see the beauty of this planet. Chao.
