Celebrity Silhouette in the harbour of Mykonos

From in Chora, between the fishers’ boats we look to the other side of the bay and see the Celebrity Silhouette. The ship looks small but in reality it is 16 decks high, what you can see on the picture of the back of the ship. If you would like to visit Mykonos as a cruise ship passenger you can easily get to town via shuttle busses at a low fare. There are also some nice yachts here, probably from some rich pensioners. What do you think of this Pelican? Yes, it is a real one.

Vanuit Chora, tussen de vissersboten, aan de andere kant van de baai zie je de Celebrity Silhouette. Het schip ziet er klein uit maar in werkelijkheid is het 16 verdiepingen hoog, wat goed te zien is op de foto van de achterkant van de boot. Cruise passagiers die Mykonos willen bezoeken kunnen voor een laag tarief een shuttle bus nemen. Een excursie boeken is dus niet nodig. Er liggen hier ook enkele zeer mooie jachten, waarschijnlijk van rijke renteniers. Wat vind je van deze Pelikaan? Ja, het is een echte..

  3. A terrific series of shots! I love the sea, but I would rather be on a sailboat than a cruise ship or a yacht. That pelican made me laugh, he looks very content.

  9. I have never seen an all-white pelican. Was it an albino or were there others like it too?

    Thank you for all your comments on my blog Filip, I appreciate your visits.
