After a sickening overnight passage, we arrived in the welcoming Berry Islands. We found a nice place to anchor a little ways off of a wreck and a small, pretty beach. I regret to inform you though, that we have not snorkelled the wreck yet on account of the water being too cold. I know that sounds a little pathetic, especially when coming from swimming glacier lake water, but I guarantee you that if you were in the hot sun all day, swimming only hot tub water, you would be in the same shoes.
Either way after a very lazy first day here, my dad and sister felt urged to go to the beach, so we lowered our kayak and sent them off. A little while later Alexander and I decided they must be having a blast on their pristine beach with nobody on it, so we inflated our paddleboard and attempted to get there ourselves.

Finally we decided to leave the beach, so we placed our paddleboard in the water and departed. The paddle home was a little easier because the wind wasn't directly against us, but it had changed so it wasn't with us either. We finally reached our home once more and put back our gear, then dried off.
