Bright and early Saturday morning, about half our combined group boarded the bus to head for the nearby port city of Pireaus. There we transferred to a multi-level tour boat for our day “on the water.”
The top level was “open air,” with a tarp covering over the midsection. There, a band played throughout the day, and “Zorba the Greek Lessons” were given early on.
The journey was as much fun as arriving at the destination, and we had stellar weather and a soft breeze all day long.
We passed island after island, each with its own little quirky charm, on our way to Hydra, our first of three island destinations, but no one on board seemed to be in any particular hurry to get there.
It was like sailing on our own private yacht!
