Katakolon, Greece

Smooth sailing, an olive oil tasting at an olive tree farm, a 1,000 year old olive tree, and pictures of taking pictures.

Katakolon, Greece

Yesterday was a sea day. In the afternoon we were going through the Aegean Sea. Which according to the captain is not known for smooth sailing.

We were lucky. It was beautiful.

Today we stopped in Katakolon, Greece. Our last stop on this cruise. Tears :)

These two weeks have gone by so quickly. This has been our favorite ship, Cunard has done well. It probably helps we were in a Queens Grill suite. When we sail on the Queen Mary 2 in a couple weeks it will be a regular cabin, so we'll see.

We went on a tour to an olive oil farm. It was educational and interesting.

They have 6,000 olive trees here. We did an olive oil tasting. Fun! We've done this a few times now and we are getting better at detecting the subtleties.

This olive tree I'm standing by is 400 years old.

They fed us some local Greek food. Mitzi at the sausage, usually not a fan, and enjoyed it.

This other olive tree is 1,000 years old!

We walked the little town near the harbor and got some ice cream.

And took pictures of each other taking pictures. Mitzi's picture was in focus, mine not so much. She is a great photographer! We have so much fun taking pictures together.
