Mykonos is another beautiful Greek island with sandy shores and a crystal clear sea. IMHO Mykonos rivaled Santorini in its awesomeness and Greekness. Apparently this place is visited frequently by celebrity types, but I never spotted any. It was amazing to wander the streets and turn corners to see if one view could outdo the next.
The trademark Mykonos windmills are impossible to miss upon arrival. They aren’t used for anything now but have definitely become part of the Mykonos landscape. And they make interesting photographs-
I stumbled upon Petros the Pelican, who is the official Mykonos mascot and somewhat of a legend. I was told to snap a picture if I happened to spot him. I had heard he could be found wandering the streets but mostly hung out in the harbor. That’s where I found him.
One outdoor restaurant boasted sun-dried octopus on their menu. They even had samples hanging outside. The scene resembled whole plucked chickens dangling from a net overlooking the tables. Didn’t quite have the intended marketing effect for this visitor.
Several sources warned that Mykonos gets a little wild at night, but after a long day we were sailing back through the Aegean Sea before the sun even went down.
Average high in Mykonos is 78F in June. I’m in…
