Thanks GGR. When we were sailing away from these amazing isles, I remarked that they could almost be some exotic islands in the Pacific like Tahiti, if it wasn't for the freezing cold we were experiencing! Cheers - Jim

You made a nice sea trip Jim. Wonderful weather and good photographs like this one. Really rough those small islands!! Cheers.

Jim Mills on October 30, 2010

Thanks very much for you compliments on these photos Uranzu. Although the weather here is lovely, we started the day having to wait over an hour on a cold grey morning for the boat to arrive. Then, with it being a small fishing boat , we were seriously rocked about and splashed by spray adding to our cold and discomfort! But as soon as we arrived, as if by a miracle, the clouds cleared away and bright sunshine stayed with us all the time until approaching our home harbour, the cold grey clouds came back again! So we felt like true pilgrims when we arrived cold and dazed on the island, to then tackle the steep climb up to the monastery. Best wishes - JIm
