Morning at Mykonos

We were sad that it was our last day in Mykonos. We no longer had the little Smart car so we wandered around the town. We went to the little bakery again and went to Piccolo for coffee. The young lady at Piccolo recognised us and give us huge cups of coffee. That made us very happy. We sat at their little table and drank it and chatted. We got a second cup and asked if she would mind if we took a picture. She quickly said it was alright and ducked behind the counter to avoid being photographed. A man behind the counter, (we think it was the owner) wanted to be in the photograph. He asked us where we were from and wanted to talk politics.
We wandered around and took some photographs.... We wanted to go to the folk museum but it was closed for the season. We went into the Aegean Maritime Museum. It was just a small area but it was stuffed amazing things....Papyrus boat models, Old ship models, wine amphoras, mosaics, ship memorabilia, a light house, gravestones, sarcophacus', old artifacts, reproductions of item used in ancient times, ships in a bottle.
Eventually it was time to leave for the ferry. The ferry was docked at the far side of the bay.... David walked with his long legs and I jogged behind him with my suitcase on my back. It was quite a ways and I was worried about missing the ferry until we finally got there.
We took a few pictures on the ship and in front of the Greek flag. It was sad to leave Mykonos but we were looking forward to the next part of our journey.
