Today we are first going to walk down the Steps to Fira Old Port before it gets too hot! walking, not riding a donkey mind, and will probably get the cable car back up.
Its only about 5 - 10 mins walk along the top to the start of the " Karavolades Steps" about 600 steps down to the Old Port where the cruise ships passengers are brought to shore.
Down here?!!!!!!!!!!! The start of the way down!
What a view stop :)
Its a long way down still haha loads of donkeys further down the steps.
Local Wildlife :)
loads of these small lizards on the way down and a butterfly flew past which might have been an Appolo i think.
Rush hour traffic jam!
"The Old Port"
Sitting eating large ice creams served in glass
Water clarity is amazing , we can see small fish everywhere.
Old and the New.
Up we go :)
At the top there is a HUGE queue of cruise ship passengers all waiting to get on the cable car , with 6 cars taking a maximum of 6 people each its going to be quicker to walk for most of them Haha.
Bougainvillea looks great on this gift shop :)
Back to the hotel now for an hour or so and then we are going to take the bus to Oia to watch the sunset , like most of the island by all accounts.
