Lazy day today. Took the shuttle to town, and window shopped–us, Privens, Agnews. Big expense was a T-shirt for Dick and a cord to hold sunglasses...that he instead used to hold his hat on. Sunny, but very windy. Back to the ship for lunch (was that anise in the potato soup?), Dick to play with the camcorder (apparently it also takes ‘stills,’ so he is trying to figger that one out), and then a nap. Ahhh, life is good. Dinner onboard (Privens went ashore to try the local cuisine) Hmmm, rhubarb and strawberry soup; us and Agnews went ashore to sit and watch the bay activity and try a local beer after dinner. Mykonos is typical of what we’ve seen in the movies, with whitewashed houses cascading down rocky, mostly treeless hills toward the beautiful sea...not too shabby a sight, by day and by night! Did I mention that life is good?
