The Maldives Day 11: Kuramathi Island Resort - Fun beach finds and sunset on the sandbank

Are you guys getting tired of all the photos of the same place? Well it is almost over! Just two more posts to go. 

Big shark!

Fruit bats eating the fruit!

We really just swam all day! Raymond went snorkeling again in the morning and I was in the pool almost the entire day - just out for lunch and to get more cold beverages!

Can anyone guess what this is?

When we were out on the sunset cruise the night prior we saw that you could walk forever out on the sandbank since it was low tide. So we headed out there for sunset and it was gorgeous!

You had to wade across some really shallow water at times, but you could walk out really far

Looking back at the island from out on the sandbank

The water is really shallow, but the tide was coming in. I was okay until Raymond stepped somewhere and almost stepped on a sand crabbie! He moved and buried himself again, but then I was worried I would step on them!

On the way back to our room after sunset I took photos of lots of fun things I found on the beach

There were so many hermit crabbie!

The hermit crabbies would always hide when you got close

I don't know what this hermit crabbie was doing - making a hole for himself?

Tiny sand crabbie! They move so fast they look like fuzzies blowing across the sand

Back at the room - so gorgeous here!

We went back to the Indian restaurant again for dinner - another veggie ball

We had Harabara Kabab - veggie patties

And Vegetable Samoosa - both were delicious! Normally I am just so so on samosas. They are good, but not my favorite. These ones were delicious!!

And we tried the Dum Aloo Kashmir - potatoes with dried fruit

And Rajma Masala - kidney bean curry! I like kidney beans more than chickpeas so I loved this

And more of the Kulcha as it is so tasty

And we tried the Puri - deep fried bread puffs. Everything was super tasty!! We definitely need to plan a trip to Indian just for the foods! We were so stuffed again, but totally worth it! 

Afterwards we spied on the live bands at the bar near here, but they were just so so. So we spied on the band at the bar near our place which I enjoyed a lot more, but it was really muggy out so we went back to our room for a quick dip in the pool to cool off. Only one more day left...

Stupid Libraries.

So I only have six minutes left and just wasted a few seconds letting you know, but I need some assistance in getting things off our iPod onto the net. In the last town we were in, I came so close to getting it up only to be thwarted by the only damn cd -burner in the shop being broken. This is the problem: my iPod is mac formatted - the folks at Apple thought it would be hilarious to not include some sort of compatibility between windows and mac versions of iTunes to read the voice memos you record from any computer. If your iPod formatted on a mac (I believe it's HSF +), windows iTunes will tell you to reformat the buggar . And get this, the iPod records voice memos in old school PC style wav files. What the hell. Anyway, I can't test or install things on this library computer, but if someone checking the blog who is tech savvy could find a program to retrieve data from a mac formatted iPod from a windows machine - a program that doesn't use a god damn install

The end

So it started raining on us for days and we cut out to come back to Seattle for a few days and wait for it to clear up.....and then Raymond decided he really did not want to go back out. So I at first was pretty upset cause I really wanted to get to Canada, or at least as far as we could while the weather was still nice this weekend. And I was feeling really like we were giving up for no reason. Like if one of us were injured or if I was hating it or something then I would have been better about it. But instead it was like the forecast called for gorgeous weather this weekend and we were just going to sit at home. I figured we could have at least gotten to the next stop and then only had one more chunk to do next year, but Raymond really didn't want to go back out so we decided not to. But hopefully by this time next year we will get the last 2 sections done, and maybe go back and do the section from white pass to snoqualmie as we went RIGHT by Mt Rainier and it is supposed to be g

Paris here we come!

So not much to update since the last time. I'm trying to think what we even did the past two weeks. Well last weekend was roller derby nationals in Atlanta, GA and is the first time we haven't gone to nationals in...4 years! We have gone the past 4 years so it was a little sad not to be there. However they do stream it live for a small fee so we did that so last weekend lots of roller derby was watched! Luckily it was on the east coast so it was only 6 hours difference so we didn't stay up too too late (Sat I think we got to bed at like 3am) and we got to watch Gotham win again! It was fun watching from the couch, but I much prefer to be there. I mean when I would be yelling at the TV and clapping and cheering when something good happened and it is just not the same when it is just me doing that. The claps echo in the room...Next year is going to be in Milwaukee which I don't really know anything about, but apparently they have a lot of vegan food. We shall see if we ma
