Today we took a two hour ferry ride from the island of Santorini to the island of Naxos. The ferry left at 3:30. But first we did a bit of exploring on the east side of Santorini. We stopped at a beach front restaurant for drinks and to enjoy the view.
Next we drove up a steep switch backed road to the point where the trail to ancient ruins of Thera starts We didn’t have time to climb to the top but we did get some pictures of the views of both sides of the island. On the way down we recorded a video of Duke’s thoughts on Santorini and the Panda we were driving.
After getting gas, driving to the ferry dock and returning our car we had beers next to the dock and enjoyed watching all the activity.
On Nexos we rented a car and checked into our hotel. After a short rest we walked back down to the port and had a great dinner at Meze Meze.
We also had mussel risotto and grilled octopus but forgot to take pictures. For desert they gave us complimentary yogurt with candied carrots. It was excellent. It is good thing that we had a walk back to our hotel because we were each very full
