Sorry it's been so long since I said I would update from the trip! Things have been hectic around here. We've been busy busy with school activities and the general "it'ssunnysoidon'twanttobeindoors" syndrome. :)
This week, our house has been turned upside down while the homeowners have had the windows replaced. ACK! My entire house (and everything in it) is completely covered in sawdust and dust. yuck. So, the main goal is to clean the house up tomorrow and then we're gonna hit the road for a weekend in Legoland. We've been here 2 years and we still haven't been. It's about time! Plus, Colin is like a big kid himself and Legoland is right up his alley. I just love inspecting the dioramas...I love anything miniature.
So, here are the photos from Santorini. Better late than never, right?!?! ;)
Me, on the beach...just minutes after we got settled into our hotel. Let the fun begin!
My rocks I collected from our swim in the ocean. They make me happy :)
We decided to take a boat tour of the caldera to see the sunset. This is us on the bus.
This is the King Thiras that we took on the tour
A view of the other side of the harbor.
The caldera, as seen from our boat.
NOT impressed with the ouzo...even if they do chill it. ICK.
A view of the clifftop villages around the caldera.

More clifftop villages and a bar/restaurant at the bottom left...called Sunset Bar
Sunset in Oia
The next morning, we ran around taking photos while we waited for our taxi to show up.

And old chair that I liked :)
The flowers right outside our room
On the way back to England...flying over the caldera. I just love this photo . :)
We had such a good time. I love the men in Greece. They are so over the top and uber-friendly. We got tons of free wine from waiters and men at restaurants and we even got our sunbeds on the beach for free! It's nice being a woman sometimes! :)
We could have definitely stayed one more day, though. 2 days just wasn't enough and we traveled about 20 hours there and back which is never any fun.
So, that's our trip in a nutshell. I've gotta get running. Need my rest cuz I have to get my morning workout in. :) I hope everyone is having a lovely week!
