Greece 2010 - July 11th - Blazing Around Paros and Antiparos

Wanting to ride around the island, knowing there were mountains to climb, we rented a 150cc ATV for the day. This made the day possible at all - we never could have covered as much distance, or tackled so much unfriendly terrain, had we opted for something smaller.

Paros has its own acropolis, Koukounaries, from the Mycenaean period.  Before the sun got too killer, we hiked up there.

Near the top of the acropolis.

Settlements of some sort.

Helios might have been just waking up, but Eol was in full force.

After that, we rode around the island on dirt roads, enjoying the scenery.  After a quick boat ride to Antiparos, we kept up the same, and found a small remote beach with strange rock formations.

The beach.

How we got there.

The water was very clear and much less salty than full-on sea water.

Spongy rock.  Aero bars are evidently popular in this area of the country.
