The official end of summer happened last week but I don’t consider summer ending until that first chilly night, that happened this week.  While I am sad to say goodbye to our warm weather friend, I am excited about what Fall brings.  As a farewell tribute to Summer, I wanted to share a few pictures of my honeymoon in Greece that we took to kick-off Summer 2012.  It was by far the best summer I have had in a long time!

If you ever get the chance to go to Greece, make sure to stop by Santorini (Thira).  We stayed at the beautiful Mystique Santorini resort in the town of Oia (pronounced Ee-ya).  It is a small 20 suite hotel settled on the cliffs.  Actually any hotel on that cliff will yield breathtaking views.

One the highlights on the trip was viewing the sunset in the town of Amoudi.  Everyone gathers near Amoudi Bay to watch the sunset.  People come on ATVs, motor bikes, even on donkeys to see this special treat.

My hubby’s highlight of the trip was this grilled calamari.  It was fresh caught and grilled with olive oil and seasoned with salt and pepper.  A very simple and delicious meal.
