Even though we woke up bright and early, as usual, we were limited by the bus schedule (which didn't start running until 10:30) so we killed time by reading out by the pool which is obviously the best way one can kill time, am I right?
MYKONOS PUBLIC BUS
The Mykonos buses, like the Santorini buses, were coach buses. The roads in Mykonos are in better condition and wider so it wasn't the adventure we had in Oia. You pay the driver directly when you climb on board so have your money ready.
The bus ride to Mykonos cost €2.30 and was a short twenty minute ride from our hotel. We arrived with a bus full of people ready to relax.
While I was wading, a chip bag floated into my face, which was probably the last thing I would expect to happen in paradise.
SAKIS GRILL HOUSE
With our snacks in hand, we wandered over to the windmills and managed to get there when it wasn't overly crowded and got some pretty good snaps of the iconic landmark. One of them was marked as private property but a couple of them had openings in their fences that you could walk right into. The private property one looked to be in the best condition and we wondered if someone actually lived there.
By the time the sun was setting, our stomachs were ready for dinner.
My sister asked if we were expected to drink the whole bottle, to which our waiter replied, "Why not?" Considering that my wine glass arrived full to the brim, I think they just wanted to help us get the night started early. Little did they know our big evening plans were to go back to our hotel to watch some Netflix, if the internet cooperated, or Pride & Prejudice (the BBC version with Colin Firth) if the internet did not cooperate (because that was the only thing downloaded to my iPad).
