Journal Entry:
Went back to Ios, this time took the stairs (15 minutes instead of 40). Looked at a couple of the shops, decided it was the typical, hiked to the church above the village, hiked to the church on the hill opposite the village. From the second church I was going to head back to the boat a couple hours early when I spotted a few locals with beach gear heading accross a dirt field. Decided to follow, ended up looking down at a tiny beach. Hiked down the ruins to get to the beach, which was mostly deserted - just four or five nudies. I kept my shorts on for my swim. I had to be back at the boat so I didn't have enough time to sun dry off, so I ended up wishing that I had gone natural.

Set sail at about 2pm. Almost 30 nautical miles later we ended up at Naxos. No room in either of Naxos' harbors so we ended up anchoring behind the jetty.

Went ashore for dinner, 5 people in the dingy is really pushing it. Naxos has an amazing selection of tavernas and restaurants, and after way too much discussion we agreed on one. After dinner was spent exploring the town a bit. Then the somewhat wet ride back to The Andreas.

I decided to go in and see what the night life was at about 11:30. Went to a couple bars before settling at a dance place. The music was way to loud to talk, but I had a few beers anyway. Back on the boat by 2:30.
