July 4 to July 11 - Paros island, Greece

Here are a couple of photos from our relaxing week in Paros. We spent a lot of time hanging out and exploring so we don't have as many pictures from this island as we do the others.

We took the bus up to the Northern Coast of the island to a small harbour town called Naoussa. It was a quaint harbor town full of the typical greek island architecture of whitewashed houses with blue doors & window shades.

This photo was also in the same harbor. It was a really windy day with lots of waves crashing over the sea wall. We were unable to visit the sinking 14th century castle shown in this picture, as Angela was having no part of walking on that wall with waves crashing everywhere.

A couple of days later we rented a 4 wheel ATV and went cruising around the western side of the island. On our way back to our hotel, we stopped at a place called Butterfly Valley. It was amazing to see all of these beautiful butterflies in this area. Click on the Butterfly Valley link above for more information.

And Yes, Matt does look pretty proud of himself here. Have I mentioned that it is windy on Paros??? Well, lets just say that a powdered sugar donut and wind do not always mix well.... Or, I guess I should add that if your goal is to soak your spouse in powdered sugar, then Matt should get an A+. Note the powdered sugar EVERYWHERE!!!!
