Sail-away #5

Wow...we are finished with group five already! This group was made of one American, a Canadian, two Austrian, and five Germans. Its really cool getting to know people from all over the world. Maybe one day we will do a huge road trip and visit them all! :)

Enjoy the pictures from Sail-away #5

Here is the whole gang....

Sail-away #4

Once again we are back in the harbor of Skopelos. This group was made up of six Germans, one Austrian, and a Swede. The popular language was German so Paul and I doubled our vocabulary by learning two new words! :) 

The wind was off and on this week so we didn't sail too much. Spent alot of time swimming, snorkeling and pretty much trying to escape the August heat. 

I gathered over 1000 pictures from the group before they left and wish I could post them all. Here are some good ones that sum up the trip. Thanks everyone! :)

The "guys"!

We had a brief visit from a rat. He got thirsty and jumped into the cooler with water.
 Poor guy!
