Santorini- Lunch at the Blue Note!



There is no beating this view and we needed to get out of the sun for a bit...I am a little sunburned! Darn!

The Blue note is walking distance back to our hotel. We'll snoop a little on the way back!

You have to try the Mythos beer. I don't usually like beer, but it's so good. Especially since we're going to have a little appetizer party or rather "mezethes" party, a long standing Greek tradition, while we're here. I am ordering kefthedes (meatballs), greek salad, octopus, and saganaki (fried cheese! Yes please!), of course there will be fresh pita bread with hummus. Oh I also ordered spanakopita and terropita (cheese and spinach wrapped in filo dough, sort of like an empanada). We'll also have tzatziki (cucumber yogurt dip), dolmades (stuffed grape leaves) and Taramosalata (caviar dip).




Tonight we will explore Oia. Bring your wallets because the shopping goes on way into the night! Their jewelry and custom made sandals will knock you out!

OMG! I just read all of your greece posts because I have been slacking on my reading last week and it brings back so many memories! My husband and I Honeymooned in Santorini an stayed very near On the Rocks at a hotel called Sun Rocks- we went to Vanile and Blue note and walked to Fira and Took a Smart Car to the Red beach and you know that mountain looking hill thing? We walked along that path to the top!
Not sure if you'll have time on your blogacation but we took a wonderful catamaran trip with Blue Lagoon catamaran and the Captain "Ted" was amazing! he even gave Giada Delaurentis her catamaran tour when she did a show there! Anyway-What a fun idea! enjoy!
