Friday 7th November 2014

We waited at the beautiful Marina for our sailing day.

In total we were 7 including our captain & his first mate (Mario).

Captain Reg ran us through his proposed route for todays adventure.

My personal Captain Jack Sparrow.

Left leg, What Ian thought the feet in his neoprene anti jelly fish suit should look like.......Oh dear

And here he comes, like a villain from a Bond Movie.

The impending full moon has caused the strong tides & the water appears quite dirty.

Highlight ! A turtle came to swim with us.

It's true what they say..Everyone is graceful underwater.
Ian thoroughly enjoyed his snorkeling trip & is keen to Scuba dive at a later time !

I did struggle with the Flippers , Our captain said he doesn't get on with them & I should have taken them off, ah well , with hindsight !

After an hour in the ocean we enjoyed a gourmet lunch ..Sweet chilli Muscles, chicken , salmon ,feta salad with olives & bread not to mention some enormous prawns.

A fond farewell to Black Island . almost a desert island of our own.

Our Captain was frustrated by the lack of wind on our voyage..during the final miles a breeze sprang up allowing him to shut off the engines & guide us the remaining short distance by sail.

Our companions, Sarah , John & their friend from the UK Fiona , were friendly & happily took a photo of us.

Home for a welcome shower & Ians choice, a Chinese meal to round off our splendid day.
