Turquoise Waters

We woke to bright sunshine so we headed straight to the idyllic beaches of Le Morne. 

Gas here is crazy expensive. It cost the equivalent of $60 Canadian for half a tank...and the clown car has a very small tank compared to the minivan.

After we checked out the Le Morne area beaches, (some were down a very rocky road), we chose the first beach because the waters were the calmest.

We situated ourselves on the quietest side of the beach a ways from a busy section of the beach that had the finish line for the Indian Ocean Triathalon. Incidentally, the winner looked a lot like our neighbour Jim.

The beach was picture perfect; ancient volcanic peaks, surrounded a long and curvy white sand beach. Best of all, the water was a luminescent turquoise. And very clear. 

I spent most of my time snorkeling in the warm water. Trigger fish, damsels, convict  tangs, box fish and so many more species made me feel like I was in an aquarium. 

Afternoon came too quick. We headed back to home base and watched the sunset at our Flic en Flac beach.
