The best day of my life…thus far

(written yesterday, 23 June but not posted)

23 June 2010

It’s one of those days that I think will stay with me as one of the best days of my life.  Nothing earth shattering, no life long lessons or impacts, just a really fun day.

I was half way through a Greek Islands sailing trip with 7 friends.  Our boat, suffering technical difficulties, was not able to leave the port on Paros so we were faced with another day there.

We hired quads & set off, 4 of the 8 of us, plus 3 new friends
Off to the ferry, bound for Antiparos
Where we went to explore the Antiparos Caves
Then down a dusty dirt track
To a secluded cove. Secluded but for the naked Scandinavian couple
A swim
On for a seafood lunch
To another beach
Oh, and let’s biscuit as well
Back to Paros, time for an ice cream
And and a cartwheel in the sun
Back to the boat in time for sunset
Off to a bar.  Australia won (the only game they won during the world cup)
And a crazy night of dancing and uber strong long island ice teas.


So many many more pics from this day.  Looking back at them though, even though none of them really do it justice, it’s like I can tell at the time it was a wonderful day.  This makes me infinitely happy.

What’s the best day you’ve had (aside from the days of big life changes like weddings, births etc)
