Volcano & Hot Springs

As I mentioned before, Santorini is a U-shaped island that overlooks the ocean. It used to be a round shaped island, until a volcano erupted and sunk in the middle. Now, they have tours you can take to go hike the volcano and swim in some natural hot springs it left behind. This is the beautiful boat we took to get out to the volcano.
The whole volcano had black volcanic rock just like this. We all hiked the 30-minute walk up to the top of the volcano.
Then on to the "hot springs" where Justin, Kurt and Lindsay took a quick dip. I stayed back in the boat as the photographer, because you had to jump out of the boat and neither Justin or I wanted this preggo girl flayling about off the side of a boat!
