That meant we got off the ship wonderfully early and were at the first stop, via our big bus, before the shops were open and swarmed with people. We started off in Oia (pronounced E-Ya), which is known for it's extraordinarily narrow streets and fantastic sunset views. Obviously, we were there closer to sun rise, so we had a great bright experience. This town is the "postcard" view when you think of Greece with the white houses built into the side of the cliff and the blue rooftops of the churches. It was truly breathtaking.
Enough about bad clothing decisions...look at that view! I think this was the view out into the "caldera" which is the formation created by the volcano, since Santorini and the surrounding smaller islands are all part of one volcano's activity.
We had our normal selfie shots. B is not good with them, even after lots of practice, so I always end up with the giant face in the camera. haaaaaaa
Aside from the utterly gorgeous view, there were little details of texture, shape and color that I had to catch for later on when I need a little boost or have a creative block.
No matter the direction you looked, the water and the sky continued to amaze with various shades of blue and gray...
My fear of heights stayed at bay during the quick jaunt down the cliffs, probably because I was so relieved to be out of the line and off my feet!
