Happy Happy Hawwmp Day! Are you impressed that I’m able to track hawmp day??? Or…ANY day at all??!
I sure am! Between the time zone differences and changes – and the almost total lack of my “normal” day-triggers…I’m amazed that I know if it’s Christmas or Tuesday!
Speaking of Christmas – yesterday before our shore excursion to Santorini, we did some make-and-takes using the new Most Wonderful Time stamp set and Product Medley.
Remember that one?
Stampin’ Up! pretty much took over the Tides dining room. They’re going to be vaccuming up Dimensional covers for a long time! 🙂
We all used part of our Product Medleys and our new stamp sets and made three fun and quick Christmas cards.
On the way out to get ready for our time in Santoriini, we ran into Sara and Shawn Douglas and yes…I got a picture with them and with Amy!
Then, it was time to hit the tenders (not the spicy chicken ones – the FLOATING ones!) and make our way to shore!
We gathered in the theater and then hit the boats!
First stop – the Akrotiri Ruins! This is an archaeological site dating back 3600 years! It’s really quite amazing – they built a city with buildings 3 – 4 stories tall. With rain gutters and water control systems. With toilets! And centers of commerce. Here are just a few pictures – I’ll post the rest of them over on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page in the next few days!
Apparently, in all the excavation that has taken place, they’ve found no bones at all – neither human nor animal. Which means they got everytone out before the volcano did its thing!
Our guide was a Greek archaeologist who really knew his stuff – and had a great way of sharing it with us! The only issue for me was that he sounded a lot like the father in the My Big Fat Greek Wedding movies – so I kept expecting him to tell me how the ancient Greeks used Windex for everything! LOL!
When we were done with the ruins, we rode over to Oia (pronounced Eee-uh). It’s the home of the most-likely-to-be-found-in-a-picture of Santorini cathedral. You’ll recognize it!
And this is the home of the iconic white-washed homes, apartments and hotels seen perched on the cliffs of the caldera.
Oh. And gelato! We found a wonderful little taverna with pizza and gelato. I totally expected the cast of Mamma Mia to pop out at any moment!
We wound up in Fira – the capitol of Santorini and rode the tram down to the tenders. There’s home-sweet-home on the right!
We got ourselves to Wayne’s and my cabin – which is on the back and perfectly positioned to see the famous Santorini sunset. We couldn’t have positioned the ship better ourselves!
Not long after sunset, the Captain spun the ship around and we headed out of the caldera on our way to our next stop!
Tomorrow (well….today!) – Mykonos!! 🙂
I’ll get all the pictures uploaded on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page as quick as my internet-at-sea will allow!
Hope you’re enjoying the virtual travel!!
