Crowned king and queen of their hearth, newlyweds Spyros and Ioanna Argyros receive a shower of rice at the chapel on Erikousa; they hope to fulfill the poignant declaration of a homesick Ulysses: "There is nothing nobler... than when two people who see eye to eye keep house as man and wife, confounding their ene mies and delighting their friends." Mr. Argyros moved to the United States in 1966 to seek his fortune. Last summer he re turned to marry his sweetheart and take her home to New York City. When White Mist anchored in the harbor, the groom's cousin ran to the shore to invite the crew to the wedding-a total surprise, since they had been told the island was de serted. At the wedding feast the groom's father (below) leads a circle dance.
