Greece Day 7

So today we relaxed, went nowhere, did little! We've decided to forgo going to a 3rd island. Being ‘out of season’ it is not possible to get around easily, many of the boat routes have quit running. But being marooned on this little Greek island is OK with us! Tomorrow I may feel differently…. we will take the 10PM ferry to Santorini…. a 70 mile trip that will last all night, arriving at 6AM… stay tuned! Our little island of Sifnos is known for it's potters… I'm not sure what all the excitement is about. There is one old man who speaks no English and makes the beautiful decorative pottery from the 7th photo. The people from Sifnos say, “but he doesn't MAKE IT in Sifnos, he makes it in Athens”…who cares?!

The 10PM ferry (last night) that we will be taking tomorrow night to Santorini.

The view outside the balcony doors when I opened them this morning.

Our room… they have all been quite simple…. this is $75….in Athens an identical room cost $200!

Sifnos = pottery…. these chimney tops are everywhere…. unfortunately no one ships and we've decided it isn't worth OUR effort!

JR picking up a few simple pots…

A potter who paints better than he “pots”, but the overall effect was nice.

My favorite potter in town… this large bowl is 300 euro (about $450) so I will leave without it.

Yet another great entrance to a home.

The “honeymooners”!

I like the stuff by the guy with the minimal potting ability but the passion for painting! Hope the overnight boat trip goes well.
