Day 6: Sunsets and 50 Shades of Blue

View Greece with William on empaustian's travel map.

Today, we go back to Ornos beach and decide what we want to do with our day. We originally planned to see Delos, a little island that is the supposed birthplace of Apollo, but a couple of our Greek drivers and hosts alluded that it was not important to see.
I close my eyes for a little while laying on the beach and I open them to find many beach goers topless and in speedos. Anything for an even tan :)

We wanted some exercise in the afternoon so we hike up a hill and basically found that we could follow the bus route on foot. We pass beautiful hotels with door frames in shades of light green and deep blue. We also find the biggest spider of my entire life in a small bush of passion fruit.
We guess which houses are owned by celebrities and eventually make our way to another port where we see boats that look like they are right out of Pirates of the Caribbean.
When we arrive back at the hotel, we run into our host, Mina, who welcomes us with a hug and offers to drive us to the port the next day. Will and I are both burnt and ready to hop in the pool.

We take a bus into Mykonos City to watch the sunset behind the windmills. I don’t consider myself a huge sunset person, like Will, who wanted to watch them every single night from the highest point on the island. However, the sunset in Mykonos was simply amazing. We watched the whole sky transform into a deep red and the golden sun fell behind the horizon and the anticipation was like watching the ball drop on New Year’s Eve in New York.
At the end of the day, Mykonos has gorgeous sunsets and a big party scene, but just like spring break, it must come to an end. Will and I are ready to continue our explorations somewhere else.
