Melissa & Dave - Adventures at Sea

Day 10 – I pronounce you still married


We slept in and then in the afternoon Marla and Melissa went for massages at the Euros beach bar we found last night.  We paid for 50 minutes each and got 1.5 hour.  The masseuse was a gal from the UK on vacation, but in Santorini because she wanted to move there and set up a palates center.  She was filling in as a favor to the owner of the bar.  The massages were fabulous - set on the beach you could hear the waves and feel the nice breeze.  Ahhhhh.....

We went back to the Euros bar at sunset and Dad and Marla exchanged a short set of vows.  Dave ends with "By the authority vested in me by the Washington State Boater Education Card and endorsed by the Greek Port Police, I now pronounce you still husband and wife."  Melissa had ordered a bottle of champagne and we had a toast to celebrate.

We then went to dinner at the Saltsa restaurant.  It was described on one of the guides as being "the best restaurant in the island and the cook/owner is supposed to be one of the best 10 chefs in Greece".  Directions to the restaurant were as follows:  It is located in Firostefani on the right side of the main road going from Fira to Imerovigli about 800 meters after the main square of Fira. Believe it or not we found it!  The food was AMAZING.  One of the 5 best meals we've ever eaten anywhere any time.  Every dish they served was incredible and unique.  And not expensive.  A bottle of wine, dessert, appetizers, and main dishes for 4 people and the total was $135 Euros.
