A slow boat on the Aegean

Greece - Cruise
Greece - Cruise

Today we headed out early to catch a cruise around three of the Greek islands closest to Athens. Leaving port this morning at about 8.30am, the sun was up and had a fair sting in it - needless to say we took the opportunity to sit on the outer deck and soak up some of the fine rays.

The first thing that stuck us, once we had left the docks and headed out to sea, was the brilliant blue colour of the water - it was absolutely amazing. People have told us about the water over here, but its something you don't really appreciate until you see it (and later swim in it :) ).

The cruise was just what we both needed - some time to it and do nothing for a while!

We spent some time on each of the islands, and managed to fit a swim in on the last two - in that beautiful clear water.

Unfortunately Laura cut her foot while getting into the water at the second island - but we managed to find a local supermarket and add band aids and antiseptic spray to our current day pack first aid kit - oh and we patched her foot up in the process.

After a great day out, we have just been relaing, and doing some washing in the hotel - and trying to plan what tomorrow will bring.
