Late in the afternoon we make our way back to Mykonos checking out the other beaches as we go. There is a small fishing village located between Kalafatis and Ayia Anna. Ayia Anna looks good complete with large windbreakers. We miss the turning for Kato Livahi and end up on Elia, this is busy and had a lot of naked old men sunbathing on it. We then stop at Super Paradise and Paradise, the second has a very large campsite, with good facilities and good connections to the local bus route. They are busy with the young crowd, complete with fast food, loud club music, and belly dancing on table tops Greek style...Paradise for some. Ornos beach the closest to Mykonos town, has a few hotels and pensions on it and looks very self contained. I am pleased with the beach we went to today, it suites our quiet style.
Having had a late and large lunch at the beach, we do go down into Mykonos town for supper. We go to The Opa Taverna and have the most wonderful Hummus ever, it was flavoured with cumin. Then fresh ‘line fish’ grilled on the BBQ. Again so fresh and delicious.
After dinner we looked at the art galleries, genuine art galleries with good pieces of original art in them. There were many inspiring pieces of sculpture. But the on the wall in Minima Gallery I see 'IT'. The painting I have been looking for to take pride of place on my living room wall. I don’t know what I have been looking for, but I know that when I see it I will recognise it as ‘The One’. Well I just found it in Mykonos. The painting is large; much to large for my sitting room wall. It is of yellowing corn, with red poppies blowing in the wind. I want it! I ask how much it is 10.000 Euros. I still want it, but it won’t fit on my wall. I ask who the artist is, I am informed that the gallery has scouts out across Europe, and the artist of this piece is a German. I am coming back tomorrow to look at it and find out the name of this artist.
