One of Rebecca's coworkers insisted we needed to visit an island while in Greece, and I am glad she did! We had a great day trip, taking the ferry about an hour to the island of Aegina. Boy do I love boats of all kinds! It was sunny and beautiful. Once we got to the island, we walked around the town, bought ice cream, went to the Aegina Ruins and Museum, and best of all, hit the beach! It was 80 degrees all day long (thanks, Auntie Laurie, for the travel alarm clock/thermometer!). It was sooo nice to relax, read, sunbathe, and swim in the warm, blue-green waters of the Aegean Sea for the day!
Mid-afternoon, the wind kicked up so we headed back towards town for lunch (Greek Salad, what else?) and bought our ferry tickets back. This time we were in a smaller, enclosed boat called a Blue Dolphin. The rocking put me right to sleep, but apparently certain other passengers were not lulled by it's motion like I was. Back to town on the metro, a quick gyro (YUM!) for dinner, and Becca and I packed up. We THOUGHT we would be leaving Greece the next day for Italy. Dum dum dum....to be continued.
