People kept telling me that the sunsets in Santorini, Greece would be spectacular so my anticipation was high! While walking around the beautiful streets of Oia, I could have sworn that I had been magically transported to a Detroit deteriorated city like area! This was not far at all from the place pictured in the top photo of this post.
I was looking for a place away from the crowds to get the best view of the sunset possible and NO ONE seemed to be in this area. I thought everything was OK as there was nobody around. I thought I had found a "special secret" place to see this fabulous natural wonder...until I heard the dogs barking. This guy convinced me to go find the tourists real quick!
Sunsets are always pretty in my opinion, but I just didn't see the big to do about the one I saw on this greek isle. Perhaps I'm fortunate that I live in Florida on the water where almost every night I see lovely, colorful sunsets that are usually accented with clouds. The clouds and a little more color was what I did not see while here.
Many people were waiting to watch the "epic Santorini sunset". There are bars and restaurants in the area simply for people to eat, drink and watch the sunset. It was a festive atmosphere and a fun experience overall.
