We wandered through the lanes to have lunch of ‘toast’ (toste) which is essentially a Panini style toasted bread stuffed (and I mean stuffed!) with mayo, ketchup, pickles, hotdog, spiced sausage, Russian salad and tomato…a real feast!

Then we arrived at the food section! A massive fruit and veggie warehouse which I was very happy to take my time walking through!
|I don't think I've ever seen so many tomatos!|
|Strange and sour red berries...|
|...that come from this awesome-looking plant!|
All this walking meant we built up a bit of an appetite and we excitedly headed, like kids, to an ice-cream stall on the seafront to treat ourselves to a mulberry and mastic ice-cream (local specialty flavours!)
We sat on the harbor front, dangling our feet over the water and watching the sun glistening on the water and boats around us – perfect!

In the evening we caught a boat from the harbor over to Cunda Island. The island is actually connected to the mainland via a bridge and causeway that was built in the late 1960s, but there is something about travelling by boat that just screams ‘holiday’!

For a delicious seafood dinner: meze...
...and grilled dorado...
We grabbed a ferry boat to the mainland.
