Azure cave

Dan and our (odd) captain on the way to the cave.

Apparently Odysseus is said to have ended up in a cavern like this and thought he was in the next world. There is something otherworldly and awesome about being in a place like this. Yes - the water really is that color.
When you are in there the cave is dark above you except for the azure reflecting up and onto rocks and peoples faces. It is so clear you can see every barnacle under the surface and every ripple from the oars. You can see where the sunlight comes in through the opening beneath the water's surface. Seeing that doesn't change the amazing sense of awe in the place. One of the most incredible things I have ever seen.
