A cat on a step on the Greek isle of Thirasia

Of the idyllic Greek Islands everyone knows Santorini and yeah, its bloody beautiful! In fact watch this space for some images of this famous island. Across the Caldera is the little island of Thirasia which is usually a 1/2 day excursion from Santorini. It’s how Santorini probably was before the rich, the famous and the tourists discovered it. No more than a couple of hundred people live here. It has a small harbour, a couple of small villages and pretty church, lots of steep steps, pebble beaches and this cat!
By the way a caldera is a volcanic feature created by a volcanic eruption. In this case Thirasia, Santorini and a couple of smaller islands are all that’s left of a much larger Island after a volcanic eruption.
