The sun is rising ever higher in the Mykonos sky so we know we won’t have the old town to ourselves for much longer!
The cafes and restaurents are starting to put out their signs to catch the day trippers and the shops are beginning to lay out their colourful wares.
The meandering maze of streets seems endless and I love the cool greys, blues and white hues.
Olive oil, herbs, soaps, bags and a hundred other souvenirs begin to appear on the street, artfully designed to snag your eye, and then money!
Every door is an advertising board or tiny art work, whether in shades of green or sky blue.
Squishy blue cushions soften the solid stone walls, a common seating arrangement in the old town.
We’re heading gradually towards the sea and its line of windmills, but it is hard not to get distracted by this pretty little oasis.
