So I'll move on to the next day. We boarded a cruise ship for a 4 day trip around several of Greece's islands. (I'm skipping all the pictures of the cruise ship - I'm sure you all know what a typical cruise ship looks like - pool, lots of tables, restaurants, etc.) Anyways, the islands are where you see the really beautiful parts of Greece! Our first stop on the cruise was at the gorgeous island of Mykonos. All of the buildings there (and I mean EVERY building) is pure white with bright blue roofs. We found out later that all the buildings are whitewashed twice a year.

We found out that at the other end of the island, there was a lovely little place called "Little Venice," which had pretty windmills and was a great spot to be at during sunset. Unfortunately, we left Little Venice before the sun set (although we got some great sunset pictures back near the cruise ship!), but it was still a fabulous scenic spot for photography:
I managed to get this picture at Little Venice while the sun was setting. Because the sun was too bright for my camera lens, I took this photo by placing my sunglasses in front of the lens. I really like the effect!
