We woke up early to finish packing. Pension Morfeus has been a fabulous place to stay both location wise, hospitality wise and definitely has the best ever bathroom for a pension. We give Pension Morfeus 5 Stars!
Maria comes to say goodbye to us and she gives us a gift. It is wrapped in tissue paper. When we open it later we discover a prettily decorated piece of Sifnian pottery – we are absolutely delighted with it and touched at the thought!
We have a bit of time before we need to go to the ferry so we do a bit of last minute shopping in Mamidas Ceramics which is close to the port in Kamares. It is like an Aladin’s cave in here and it’s so tempting to get carried away. I settle for a small chimney pot that will make a nice tea light centre piece, and sun and moon plaques for my garden. These are packed well for us and we make sure it is placed carefully into the hand luggage.
It is time to go. Amongst the small group of travellers leaving Sifnos is the elderly Greek man who gives a friendly greeting. Through gesticulation and the odd word it transpires that he is from Athens and had been visiting the mining museum in Milos. This was my opportunity to say how wonderful Milos was further to our conversation the other day.
