Early in our trip, tea was served in the traditional tulip-shaped glasses.
Josh: Today we went on a boat trip. The boat had tables and chairs set out. At the far end where we sat, there were also big cushions where you could lay and bake. There was also a top floor with lots of smaller cushions where you could bake even more. We really liked it. When we were on the boat, our first assigned stop was Rabbit Island which is the island that we can see from our house, but first we stopped to pick up some other passengers. When we got to Rabbit Island, we mostly snorkeled. I didn't see much, but Kate and mom both saw crabs. The water was crystal clear. When we were done, we went to a lot of places like that. It's kind of hard to remember the order and what went on in between. At each stop we swam and at one stop, they served us lunch which was fish with the heads still on them. You could see little yellow things in the eye sockets. I didn't eat that. Kate, Alex and I asked for something else and they gave us spaghetti, which we ate happily. Mom also brought us peanut butter which we spread on "ekmek" and ate. At one point they put a board on a life preserver, put tea on it and tried to serve it to the people in the water (big mistake). The tea spilled, I saw a big round cloud form in the water and about 10 tuilip cups and dinky spoons went down into the weeds
We walked around, got some dinner and we went to a store and I bought some sandals. Then we tried to call Dad on the computer, but that didn't quite work, so we emailed with him a little bit.
Alex: My favorite part of the day was jumping off the top deck of the boat. The water was cold, but it was good too. I stayed off the boat for a while. Sometimes I would just feel the water from the side of the boat, hanging off.
Kate: I liked the snorkeling, looking at the different fishies and seeing the gigantic crab.
