I know I should have posted sooner. I have been working hard on making a video from all the pictures I have taken. I didn't know that I even had this program in my computer until this cruise. Well, I just can't pick any music to go with my pictures. They have to go with the scenes. So although there are times that I get frustrated, and I start yelling at the computer, I am having a good time with it. I'm bent on getting it right. Anyway, here is the next installment. Not very long. I believe, in this case, the Greek Islands, the pictures say it all.

Today we are in beautiful Mykonos. Just a little bit of Paradise. Here is a place where it would be so easy to let time slip away. We took a bus from the port into town and just wandered around and had lunch at Nikos Restaurant. It was a totally relaxing day. This is one place I would return to in a heartbeat.

Kuasdasi, Turkey – I made arrangements for a private tour of the Ancient city of Ephesus. So at 7:45am we were off the ship and meet up with our guide at 8am. We had a brand new 12 seat air conditioned Van. So we were very comfortable. Bekir, our guide, spoke excellent English and gave a very interesting tour of Ephesus, Celsus Library, the Temple of Hadrian and the great theatre, where Paul preached to the Ephesians. Then we went to a school where we watch a young woman making a silk rug. She was following a chart that anyone who has done counted cross stitch or needlepoint would be familier with. I've used this type of chart myself, but with a ruler, so I would know where I was at. Not this woman. Using nothing to mark her progress, she was making a most beautiful rug. Anyway, everything was beautiful and very expensive. We didn't buy anything.......
Back to the ship for lunch, then I grabbed my laptop, and off to the local Starbucks for free wifi. Well, not free I did buy a cup of coffee.
