This was our last day on Naxos and since we had only a little more than a half day, we decided to take it easy and visit with Nic and Sylvie as much as sight-see. Theoretically, this should have been a "chill" day with the high speed ferry taking us to Athens. As always there are ends to the story.
We had a nice breakfast at Nic and Sylvie's flat and picked up all our things from the other guest house. A Fond farewell to the beauty of the little houses and the beach.
Apparently the statue(s) below were considered to be of Apollo, but because of the beard on him, he now is believed to be Dionysus. He is one of 3 in Naxos but the biggest. It was remarkable that he was just sort of lying there with other rubble.
