The Maldives Day 10: Kuramathi Island Resort & Sunset Cruise

Day 10 in the Maldives started with what else? Breakfast and then Shark Patrol! There were always lots of fishes off our swimming pool in the  morning since it was high tide

And lots of baby sharkies!!


I was trying to get a photo of me and baby sharkie...

A bigger one swam by as well!


And this guy swam by which I believe is a puffer fish!

So many sharkies swam by! It was a busy morning at Shark Patrol, but Raymond was a great Shark Patrol buddy!






After a while Raymond went snorkeling again in a different channel while I kept up the patrol





He is out there by the pole









All the photos of the sharkies! There were at least 3 baby ones, a larger one, and a pretty big one that swam by. One time two baby sharkies swam by at the same time!!

They had lots of special events going on every day for the holidays. Today was leaf crafts and napkin folding. It sounded kind of lame, but it was at the same time as high tea so we figured why not check it out when we got tea? It was only us and a lady with her daughter and was so much fun!! Seriously I loved it. The people working there that were teaching everything were super friendly and a lot of fun. Everyone else was missing out! I made some palm leaf crafts first

Then moved on to super fun napkins!! I took photos of all the steps so I could remember how to make them. One of my favorites is this napkin man!


And a turtle! So cute!

My fish and bird made out of palm leaves

Then time for tea. 

In the evening we had a sunset cruise! Went out on the boat to watch the sunset. I was a little worried I might get motion sick since it was crazy windy that day, but luckily I did not. 






Our place was the fifth from the left!












My hair was everywhere!










And it again went behind some low clouds



Once the sun set they gave us champagne! or juice for me
















Heading back to the dock

We went to the Thai place for dinner again and our waitress wasn't there! Sad. We had the pad thai again

Green curry which was really tasty

And we each had an order of the broccoli as I didn't want to share! It was too tasty!

For dessert we had an order of fried bananas and an order of fried pineapple. The bananas were delicious, but I didn't care for the batter with the pineapple. It was tasty without it though. A great end to another great day.

Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Ferry home - Tórshavn

The boat home was just as smooth and uneventful as the ride to Iceland. We left Iceland at 8pm Wed, Thurs at 3pm we arrive in Tórshavn and had a few hours to wander around, then back to the boat for the night, Friday was at sea, and Saturday we arrived in Hirtshals at 11am. 

Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Final Thoughts

That is it for our Iceland adventures! I wanted to post one last wrap up just to say a few things I didn't put elsewhere, or organize my overall thoughts in one place. 

The end

So it started raining on us for days and we cut out to come back to Seattle for a few days and wait for it to clear up.....and then Raymond decided he really did not want to go back out. So I at first was pretty upset cause I really wanted to get to Canada, or at least as far as we could while the weather was still nice this weekend. And I was feeling really like we were giving up for no reason. Like if one of us were injured or if I was hating it or something then I would have been better about it. But instead it was like the forecast called for gorgeous weather this weekend and we were just going to sit at home. I figured we could have at least gotten to the next stop and then only had one more chunk to do next year, but Raymond really didn't want to go back out so we decided not to. But hopefully by this time next year we will get the last 2 sections done, and maybe go back and do the section from white pass to snoqualmie as we went RIGHT by Mt Rainier and it is supposed to be g
