weather is perfect. When we pulled up to Mahe, the main island, I couldn't help but hear the theme to Jurassic Park in my head. Or maybe it was more like where they found King Kong. Either way it was epic. There are catamarans and sailboats and supposedly there's hidden treasure left all over the islands by a pirate trying to stash it away in a hurry.
Today I only had about 2 hours to go ashore and we were tendering so that
takes a little more time. I figured I would just get off and explore for a little while until I had to come back. I didn't have time to drive to any beaches so I just put on some shorts and a tank top and went out. When I got there I saw people swimming in the water right where the tender boat docked! I had to walk through a little jungle to get where they were and then I realized they were other crew members. I climbed down the rocks and sat with my feet in the water. After about three minutes of sitting there watching everyone swim and have a good time I decided to just jump in in my underwear. You only live once and I didn't want to spend the day wishing I had brought my bathing suit and missing all the fun. The water was so warm and there wasn't much coral so I could actually swim this time. Then I got out and walked around the little town. I bought some postcards to make people jealous and then headed back to the ship. What a great day.
