Santorini (aka ‘Six hundred steps and an ice-cold beer again’)~by Jeremy J Croucher

Santorini (aka ‘Six hundred steps and an ice-cold beer again’)

Sitting on the harbour wall
with an ice-cold beer
Watching cool blue waters
in Santorini here
I’ve climbed six hundred steps
to Thira at the top
avoiding several donkeys
who looked fed up and hot

And then I walked back down again
taking pictures on the way
Getting warmer by the minute
at the hottest time of day
So an ice-cold beer is just the thing
sheltered from the sun
Before heading to the tender
as the day was far from done

This was originally posted as ‘Six hundred steps and an ice-cold beer‘ on Jemverse as a part of the ‘Aegean Shores’ series in August 2017. There are over 600 steps up a winding path from the harbour wall in Santorini to Thira at the top. Most visitors either take the cable car or risk a donkey ride; but I walked up. Santorini was at No.7 on our bucket list but, like Rhodes, we’ve since had the good fortune of visiting twice. Photo – Jempics.
