The view from our balcony


Sam dressed for kiteboarding


Sam learns to fly the 5 m^2 kite


Sam learns to crash the kite


Sam learns to get dragged through the water by the kite


Sam still learning to be pulled by kite


Sam graduates to being pulled by the kite sans instructor


But Skinny Sammy cannot carry the 5m kite by himself without being blown away!


Not Sam, but a professional kiteboarder (there is such a thing)


The pros were preparing for the Kiteboarding World Cup, to be held right on this beach next week


They could do all sorts of cool jumps and flips


Sam hiding from the sun

Outside the main chapel


Presumably for baptism


Old hunk of fresco just sitting around


Lots of extra pieces around back


Interesting find in the “junkyard” outside


Strange finds ouside. Hear no evil?


Speak no evil?


Skull and crossbones seemed out of place


Pretty flowers growing out of the sidewalk


Didn't drink at this bar, but liked the monkey


Didn't eat at this restaurant, but liked the cows


FYI, Greek toilets do not like toilet paper
