The Cycladic island of Mykonos is one of the most developed for the tourist trade.  When we were there this morning there were two giant cruise ships in port, and that made for some crowding in town.  The town is beautiful, though.  Here is an old windmill (they unfurl the sails when the wind is right) and an Orthodox Church dome juxtaposed with the Greek flag.  The last photo here is a meditative one, taken when I had a few minutes of quiet in an Orthodox chapel right on the Main Street that leads to the pier.  In order to get to Mykonos we took a high speed ferry from Tinos, then a "sea-bus" from the pier to the town.  It was a 6-ferry day, as we also sailed to the afternoon's destination--see next entry.
