My recent trip to the Seychelles was mostly spent on board a small yacht, as seen in this shot from the harbor on La Digue. (That’s Tharius, with the sun shades down and the dinghy about to head to shore.)
At least, it seemed small in comparison to the Sea Pearl, which was anchored outside the harbor.
The Sea Pearl is a historic, traditionally-rigged ship that is used for cruises around Mahe and Praslin. With just 8 cabins, the 114 foot Dutch top-sail schooner would be considerably more spacious than our little boat!
Of course, raising the sails on a ship like that would be a lot more challenging than on our boat.
She sure is beautiful though, especially when viewed from the beach on Cousin Island.
There are lots of ways to explore the world.
You can explore the world virtually at Nancie’s Budget Travelers Sandbox where Nancie and her readers post pictures from around the world to celebrate Photo Thursday. Check it out!
