    Picture perfect, and you even waited for the ship to arrive at just the right position. I like that palm tree on the right… even I could cllimb that one.

  • Thank you Gary. I was very lucky, that the ship passed by in that moment. But i was several time at this dream place, because it was just a few meters away from my bunglow ;-)
