Anchored at Waya island with IO, we also were able to catch up with our friends on Syzygy, and planned a little adventure.
We’d been eying the mountains around the bay since we arrived. Even cruising down the west side of the island before turning into the south bay, Niall and I sat on deck and daydreamed about what great hiking was waiting for us there… the ridges positively beckoned!
With the six crew on Syzygy, our group made a long snake up the hillside. It was short, but steep, and we were all sweaty and tired by the time we reached the top. As with the best hikes, though- stunning views make it well worth the effort.
Hiking back down is never as fun for me as going up. The real trick, it turned out, was to look away from the amazing views long enough to make sure you didn’t wipe out on the rocky hillside. Trail? Yeah, right…
The kids were amazing, and did great on what was a pretty strenuous half day adventure.
