Back on the road, we cycled over another large bridge and I had to stop and get a few photos. The view was simply amazing! Our guides were kind to keep us at a pace that allowed for a quick photo here and there, and still be able to keep up.
Sea kayaking!! We changed into shorts, or simply removed socks and shoes, picked up some oars and life jackets, and made our way to the beach. An impromptu beach party broke out - a bit of disco-funk music and some goofing around near the shallow water. We didn’t know if we could do the sea kayaking well, but we were already having fun!
We participated in a sea kayak experience for beginners. It began with a crash course on how to steer the kayaks. After about 5 minutes, our instructor seemed satisfied with the group’s ability - or she simply gave up on us, and it was time to buddy up and get out on the water.
