Having a great time in Sri Lanka (while our house/farm/petsitters cope with yet another snow dump!)
We looked sort of perky when we left Montreal on Friday night. We snagged the two seats ahead of the emergency exit on our Qatar Airways flight. No one next to us, yay!
After a getting some interrupted sleep on the 12-hour flight to Doha, we didn't look TOO awful!
Qatar looks like what I expected. A big desert!
We switched planes and after another five-hour flight, arrived in Sri Lanka. Our guest house was lovely and I really liked the towel and sheet art on our bed:
We had a typical Sri Lanka breakfast yesterday. Fish curry, lentil dahl, tomato/onion salad, and those big coconutty things I forget the name of!
This morning we had Sri Lankan omelettes (and fruit!) on the terrace.
This afternoon we arrived in Tangalle, where we are staying at the Mangrove Garden chalets. Here's ours:
So relaxing here! I conked out in a hammock for two hours this afternoon. Still dealing with jet lag!
And here's a spiny sea urchin I found washed up (dead) on the beach tonight. Poor thing. Glad I didn't step on it!
The beach here is quite beautiful...
Lots of fishing boats.
A happy Canadian!
I went for a walk a bit before sunset.
The ocean is too rough for swimming in most parts, but there is a spot near our place that is sheltered by a reef and works just fine. We spent a good hour in there today. Warm like bathwater, aahhhh!
And to end a fine day, supper on the beach with some fruity drinks...
