Shortly after docking we caught the shuttle bus into Mykonos (it cost $8) We followed the directions on Tom's Port Guide (highly recommend his port guides!) into town and walked to the windmills.
We had a beer in a little tavern and then wandered around the lovely shops and alleyways. Mykonos is so pretty and so easy to stroll around.
Mykonos has the most adorable little churches I have ever seen.
We looked all over for Petros the Pelican, but unfortunately he didn't come out to play while we were there.
Paula and I bought lots of lovely bits and pieces (including bath mats, I kid you not!) Once we had spent all our money, we met up with Dad and Astrid for drinks and shared snacks of saganaki (ooh I love the stuff!) and kalamari.
And this is where my heart gets broken.....
I met and fell hopelessly in love with the World's Best Cat. Honestly. He was the best cat ever. His name was Johnny (according to the waiter) and he was a little scrawny, but had a heart the size of a lion.
I almost tear up as I type this. I loved him. Fell for him hook, line and sinker the minute he climbed up, uninvited, into my lap. He lay there and purred and kneaded and rolled over so I could scratch his tummy ... we had an hour long love affair... and then I had to go.... It was the saddest part of the entire holiday. I could SO have carried that cat home in my hand luggage. So, I left a chunk of my heart in Mykonos. sob, sob
Once back on board we relaxed in the solarium for a while before having an early dinner at the buffet.
Grant got some stunning photos of the sunset!
We popped in to see the show - it was the magician/comedian fellow that Paula enjoyed last week - and then early to bed. We're all feeling a little tired for some reason.
