Picture from our June 06 Trip - part 3

We all enjoyed our closing Cretian meal on the rooftop of Elisabeth restraunt in Piscopione.

We departed by highspeed ferry for the island of Santorini (Thira)

Drew was so popular with the crew, that the Captain let him "drive" the ferry
Watch out Drew! A good captain keeps looking where he is going

Welcome to Santorini! Tour boat in the "caldera" or crater of the ancient volcano which erupted destroying the island - around the time of the Exodus.
A view from the port looking at the winding road leading out up out of the caldera

Mom and Sarah Katherine pose for a picture at lunch. The owners of this restraunt drove us back to our hotel after lunch :-)

Our hotel: Apanemo - which means "a peaceful, not windy place." The wind never stopped blowing at our hotel as it is perched on the edge of the cliff overlooking the caldera. This day was our 4th wedding anniversary.
