Another day on Santorini
On the way to Oia.
We passed a black sand beach.
This side of the island in definitely not as dramatic as the other side.
The Greek Orthodox Church of Panagia of Platsani on the main square in Oia.
Anastasi Church in Oia with its three blue domes is probably the most famous view on Santorini.
My lunch in Oia. Milk pie and a smoothie with a view of the Santorini caldera.
A video I took while enjoying my lunch.
Our second day on Santorini was spent driving to Oia, another village on the island. To get there, we traveled on a road on the other side of the island. As you can see from the first three photos, it looks quite different over there. When we arrived in Oia, we were once again perched on the edge of the steep caldera with more stunning views.

Wow, gorgeous place and lovely photos. I would love the see the church and coastline some day. Enjoy your day, wishing you a happy weekend ahead.
Life is tough, huh?
Oh, these gorgeous blue domed churches!! Truly inspiring. I have never seen a black sand beach, but have heard of them. what makes the sand black?
I'm still amazed at how white and clean everything is, Lois!
What beautiful views. The three blue domes really stand out among all the white.
Excellent photos, and the colors are amazing...so crisp, sunny, clean. I wonder if the water in the caldera is salt or fresh water. Beautiful!
There's probably a law that the colors remain the same and for good reason. They're fabulous!
What a gorgeous location! Beautiful photos and I enjoyed the video. The combination of wonderful architecture on a gorgeous coastline is irresistible!
Oh, we´ve been there but one afternoon. Thank you for showing what is there as well!
Sometimes, later in life (and this happens so often now), I think... time... take your time (but then, money was tight back then, too).
Nice! What bright clear light!
I can't get over how beautiful it is.
