Pink in Mykonos

Beverly of How Sweet the Sound is hosting pink Saturday. Please visit her for a list of participants. Thanks Beverly for being out hostess.

Before we went on our Mediterranean Cruise, I had not heard of Mykonos, Greece. It was by far one of the most beautiful places that we stopped. These pictures show some of the sights…with a little pink here and there! IMG_1334

All of the buildings in Mykonos look like sugar cubes with a boxy look and are painted white and trimmed in blue. This one caught my eye with the name of our home town on the front!IMG_1336

Many of them had this beautiful vine with lovely pink flowers growing up the buildings and balconies.IMG_1335

Mykonos was one of Jackie O’s favorite hangouts!

How very pretty it is there! I think the pink vine is bouginvilla but I can't see the blossum well enough to be sure. Happy Pink Day

Half of the group of petals reminds me of a pansy, and then the half are just plain pinks. What's it's name?

This place looks like a lovely one to spend a vacation with beautiful sunset to enjoy too.

We were there in 1990 and it is one of our favorite places..took the 3 day cruise out of Pireaus..when the tour bus backs into the port, all the men's eyes are gaping at the topless women lying on the beach! All ages!

Jon said...

Great photos...thanks for sharing them. I loved Greece when I visited there many years ago. I went to the island of Crete, which was fascinating.

It is a treat to be back online after nearly 5 months, and to touch base with my favorite bloggers such as you.
