Since we had flown overnight to get to the Maldives I had no idea how long we would sleep that first night. We were both exhausted and went to bed early, then day 2 started off with a bit of a frantic getting ready so we didn't miss breakfast. I woke up and looked at the clock and it was 9:30 - and breakfast was only served until 10! So I told Raymond we have to go if we want food!
We had ordered Indian breakfast the night before. It was so so delicious! Dal, an eggplant/squash/carrot dish, and roti. It was a lot of food, but we loved it!
The decorations outside the restaurant. All made from Styrofoam. After breakfast we went to lounge on the beach for a bit
Relaxing on the beach. We found some lounge chairs under an umbrella so we could sit, drink out mocktails, read, and swim whenever we wanted
Lizard friend in the garden
I did get in the water for a little bit!
Raymond went snorkeling and took some photos of the fishes he saw!
Lunch was a veggie shawarma with fries
And veggie couscous
Raymond was ready for food after all the snorkeling
After lunch it was back to the beach and the pool for swimming until the sun started getting us. Then back to our room to hang out in our plunge pool for a bit
We did go down for the fish feeding and there was a couple standing next to us. The lady said "You said you wanted to see a shark well there is one" to which he replied, in a very snotty voice, " Yeah but I wanted to see a big shark and that is a small on." They were having a good time...
Stingray came back - it was harder to see the fish from the dock with the glare. Much better from the bar from above
And back to our pool for sunset
Sometimes I can't decide what photos to keep and which ones to take out so I just leave them all in...
For the second day in a row you could watch the sun go behind the horizon, though I think these first two days were the only ones. Every other day it went behind some clouds low on the horizon, but was still gorgeous!
The decor next to the restaurant
Dinner was eggplant soup - delicious!! I think they used a lot of cashew creams in the vegetarian things. So so good.
And mushroom ravioli
With fruit for dessert for me
And chocolate mousse for Raymond. It was all so delicious!
We did have a jacuzzi in our room so we decided to try it out after dinner...only it took forever to fill up so by the time it was ready I was so sleepy! I didn't stay in long much to Raymond's dismay. It was a lovely day of relaxing, reading and swimming. The island is not very big, but it was so nice to be in such a beautiful place and not have anything to do!
