Santorini Blue,geraniums

The Greek Island of Santorini is my favorite. Of course I have only been to six of them and there are 226 that are inhabited.
I arrived by boat at Athinaos we rented a car and started up the mountain to the view of the Caldera. The road weaves around like a drunken snake with a thousand foot cliff at my side. My husband is afraid of high places so this was really a thrilling adventure of a drive, The hair pin turns, the one lane traffic, I highly recommend the bus.

The death defining drive is worth it when you see the sunset on Caldera. We spent a week on Santorini and a month on other Greek Islands. My memories are of the sunsets on the Caldera with a glass of wine and a bowl of "Kalamata" olives. When I think of Greece I think of the Greek blue and white homes and big blue pots of geraniums in front of them.
