Santorini, Greece. October, 2011

The view of our sailing yacht from way up on the island of Santorini. The two towns that make up this steep island are at the very top, so everything (including tourists) has to be transported by foot, by mule or by cable car. Consequently, everything is a bit more expensive. But for the views and the beauty, worth it. (By the way, the water is so deep here in the circular basin that our ship could not drop anchor. The bottom dropped out of a larger island at one point, leaving this basin in its place. Some think this provided the origin of the Atlantis legend.)
