We took an afternoon cruise on a catamaran in the Santorini caldera
We left from the port of Oia, just a few steps from our hotel, and by a few steps, I mean a soul crushing stroll down uneven rocks
Looking up at sunset point. People gather by the hundreds here at sunset with many arriving two hours early to get a good spot
Leaving the harbor
Some parts of the island are so red it is unreal
Here is Fira, looking in from the center of the caldera
My boat buddy
There is a thermal cove on the island in the middle of the caldera, which is exclusively volcanic rock
I dove off the boat head first, like I had been there before. It hurt my big forehead really bad and the thermal water was pretty murky and smelly.
There is one guy living on the island with his goats. His Italian wife left years ago.
Some houses on a volcanic rock cliff
The red beach, named so for its red sand
Kristin jumping in like a champ
Real cool boo
A massive sailboat in the distance
Does this not look like a face?
A church in the middle of nowhere
Buildings cling to the rocks like a glaze
Our partner boat
Our friends in Santorini - Paula and Joe
Water, cliff, town, and boat
Oia from below
Those are some cool looking dorks
Oia - that snaky road at left is the long walk up to Oia
