It was our last day in
Naxos so we reconfirmed our taxi pickup
for tomorrow with Joy at the used book shop. We decided to have an early lunch at
Meze2 which was recommended to Pam and Bruce by the bellboy
at their hotel in Fira, Santorini. It was outstanding and I had Gouna for one
We drove down to
for a final dip in the Plaka Beach Aegean. It was windy and the water was not
as calm as it was on our last visit. When the wind picks up the sand whips and
stings your flesh and gets in your hair. Jill was the only one who actually got
into the water today.
We drove back, bought groceries for dinner and returned our rental car. On the walk back, Jill bought a pair of Birkenstocks at a good price. We chilled out at the villa then Jill and I went out for a walk up to the top of the town and then down to the old market, talking pictures along the way.
Wall structure is amazing

The winds have moved in and the water was rough
Kastros, where we ate last night

Dinner once again was a joint effort. Pork schnitzel, garlic broccoli, lemon risotto, and a lettuce salad served al fresco on the terrace.
The terrace was where we had the best dinners

To everyone who followed our travels on my blog. Cheers!
We were low on white wine so Bruce took an empty wine bottle to the taverna where we ate the night before and got a fill up for 3 Euros from their wine spigot. We lamented our archaic liquor laws back home. At the end of the dinner, Bruce and I did our version of the Greek Dance with paper napkins. We have pictures to prove it.
Please note: No Greeks died laughing in the making of this video. Yes, we have a video.
