Hello Santorini

Arrived in Santorini on a classic beautiful bluebird day.

There was a bit of an issue with our rooms, and after a lot of toing and froing over a day, we have to stay put, essentially because there is no room anywhere. We feel a bit stuck without a car. Yesterday we caught the bus to the beach, we waited for 45 minutes for a 15 minute ride, then caught another bus to the beach. It was a black stone beach, lovely to be beside the water and get the cool breeze, was 32 degrees here.

We came back to the hotel, watched a wedding from our balcony, then caught another bus to Oia to watch the sunset. It was a beautiful little town with a festive atmosphere.

This afternoon we are heading off on a boat trip to a couple of islands, it also takes in dinner and sunset tonight. Jenny and Kelvin are hiring a car to have a look around.

Observation: Greek plumbers must be 7 foot tall. All of the showers so far in Greece are hand-held with a hook about 8 feet up the wall, I can only reach it to hang the shower up!
