The wind gods decided that Milos was our destination for the morning, and we agree it was a lovely choice. From the white beach and fascinating rock formations at the bay of Sarakiniko, to the site of Tripiti where the Venus de Milo was unearthed in 1820, there was much to enjoy.

A walk in the village took us through a maze of narrow streets; their original design was intended to confuse and thwart marauding raiders, but today this labyrinth intrigues and consumes the inveterate photographer.

Our time and pixels were spent stalking the local cats and peeling paint doorways. We also sampled the local delicacies, such as watermelon pie. Milos was a feast for the eye as well as the palate, and both were satiated with this adventure.
