We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day to explore the island.

Le Petit Plage (The Little Beach). There was a larger beach on the other side of the island. Behind me is a small restaurant and store.

This is a view from the balcony of our hotel room.

On the other side of our rooftop balcony was the ocean.

Island Girl! And you can see the stone steps and rock formations that have been there for generations.

Deborah and the sea urchin (yes, it's alive!). You'll see another view of that house there in the distance.

I tried to zoom the lens so there was detail on the waves but it turned out blurry. But if you look closely, you'll see surfers in the water.

Ngor Island is famous for its surf. Die-hard surfers come to tackle the waves every year.

You have to click on this one to try to see the surfers in the water.

Did I mention the only way to and from the island is by boat? This was my very first canoe ride.

After the first time, it was a breeze. I loved it.

Here's that house. 360 degrees of gorgeous! I could definitely live here.
