On my vacation, I saw a HUGE PELICAN!

Jacqueline Onassis put Mykonos on the map as one of the most popular of the Aegean islands... but "Petros" the pelican has made his mark too. I had read about "Petros" and was thrilled that we got the chance to see him. I guess he was wounded and is now the town pet. He just walks all over, in and around the narrow walkways within Mykonos.
I found the restaurant that we ate at in one of my books about Greece.

I, of course chose the Greek Salad. YUMMMM!!!!

We also shared the cucumber dip and fresh bread. Wow!!!!!!!

This is our view from the table where we were seated. Myconos is also famous for it's windmills...
and charming white churches. In fact all the buildings were painted white. It was magical.
Last but now least is a photo of a small vendor selling fresh vegetables and flowers.
I still can't believe I was there.
