Mykonos is all about the blue ... incredibly blue water, blue sky and blue doors and window frames on the most dazzling white buildings you have ever seen. Nearly every structure is painted white; so is the mortar between the cobblestones on the street, and the trunks of the trees. And it all looks like it was just painted yesterday, especially for your arrival. This town is absolutely brilliant, so if you go be sure to pack your darkest shades.

We did our own tour of Mykonos, arriving by tender and wandering into the side streets from the dock, venturing up the hillside and capturing the view, then coming back down to navigate the narrow streets and shop a little. All in all, it was a lovely visit, except I could not get the Fleet Foxes song Mykonos out of my head the entire time.
And you will go to Mykonos
With a vision of a gentle coast
And a sun to maybe dissipate
Shadows of the mess you made ....
You go, wherever you go today

For all the whiteness, there wasn't a single sheet of paper to buy. But it was a great photo day!
