Nothing to do but relax…
(Thanks Marie for that great panorama shot from your fancy camera!!!!)
This is such a special trip. Since our boat is so small — just 14 passengers and 4 crew members — we can sail to some really secluded areas, and we don’t have to rush around. I love that we have an itinerary, but we sort of go according to our own schedule. For example, if we feel like staying for an extra hour to swim or explore, our crew will work with us. Also, our boat can fit into areas where a giant cruise ship wouldn’t be able to fit so we can dock in some remote little towns — like Aktur.
Today was the day we pulled the kayaks off the yacht and went for a paddle.
I really can’t get over how clear and blue the water is, here.
We began this morning with another amazing breakfast. It seems we’re starting to feel like one big family on this boat.
It’s just beautiful, here.
Some of my crew-mates looking at the photos I posted of them on my blog:
Time to swim and sun!!!
This really is luxury; not only does the crew sail us to exotic ports and islands, cook for us and wait on us, they also clean our rooms every day!!!
Life is good!

Since we were running low on some supplies, Koray, Clare, Carol, Allison and I took the “dingy” out (little motorized boat attached to our yacht) to the town of Aktur, near where we docked in order to pick up some groceries.
Apparently, Aktur is a tiny little resort village. It looked like a cute, sleepy one-market-in-a-fishing-village kind of a town.

…Heading “home” to the big boat!
And then we were back on the “road” to our next destination! Off we go to the next port!
The view along the way from the boat was pretty awesome.
