We were walking back to the main port on the island of Hydra,Greece..after swimming at the small beach at Avlaki. This coastal road rises in elevation..so we had to walk down 78 steps to reach the swimming area. It was worth it. The Aegean Sea was warm and clear. The port is crescent shaped..and the view in the background is what all visitors see upon boat arrival from Athens.
