On Amorgos

Barry and I arrived yesterday via a 5-hour ferry ride to Amorgos, the easternmost island of the Cyclades (sih KLAH duss) group in the Aegean Sea.  This is a gorgeous place, not overrun by tourists, still beautiful and largely unspoiled.  We went for a 4 to 5 hour hike from the top of a ridge down  to a town on the sea, and around to an inn for lunch and a swim.  Below, some pictures:
1.  Some of our group coming down on one of the donkey paths we hike along
2.  One of the island's donkeys.  They are still commercially viable due to lack of many roads into the interior
3.  A view across the island
4.  Barry and I at lunch break.  Maybe a good one for a Christmas card.
