Honeymoon, Maldives, Uncategorized HONEYMOON IN THE MALDIVES – nothing to do but relax… 26 August 2009

During our entire stay, we spent almost every waking moment outdoors and/or in the water. D’you know what’s weird? I’ve never actually liked the ocean. I don’t hate it or anything, I’m just not a huge fan of it. Too windy, too many waves, too deep, and waaay too cold. Whenever I went to the beach, I did exactly that – sit and prance around the beach, but never venture into the water.

But for the first time in my entire life, I LOVED the ocean. It’s all waist-deep around the villa, and absolutely warm. The water is crystal clear, and teeming with brightly-coloured fish! It was the first (and possibly last) time in my life that I was eager to get into the ocean; which we constantly did. That really surprised me.. I expected to mostly lounge around on the deck chairs and not get into the water, but here I was, constantly frolicking in swimwear in the lovely warm water. It’s like I became a totally different person 😛

Perfect blue skies, crystal clear waters and a light breeze… there’s no other way to enjoy all that than to dip in and out of the ocean, and relax on the hammock or deck chairs and waste time. It’s also the first time, for as long as I can remember, that I’ve actually sat still for a significant amount of time and done nothing, thought nothing, and just sat around enjoying each other’s company. It was magical 🙂


Honeymoonette and Honeymooner, as Chris dubbed us 😛

Stop taking pics of my (burnt) bum!

There’s an umbrella growing out of Chris!

My bikini matches the ocean 😛

Lounging out on the hammock. Niiiice.

Mmmmm…

Perfect blue and aqua.. all the pics are unedited, believe it or not!

One happy (and cheesy) camper

    The water looks incredible; I’m not surprised you spent most of the day in there. By the way, just how many swimsuits do you have, and did you take them all on your honeymoon? (PS: they’re adorable!)

      It was really amazing to just chill out and lounge around all day.. such a far cry from usual life back home!

      I have 2 swimmers, and bought 2 more just before the honeymoon 🙂

      My fave part was definitely the clear (and super warm) water.. made it so much fun to be just above it and jump in anytime, hehe.

    Your bikinis are too cute 🙂 They suit you perfectly! And I agree with the cold water… but there’s also another reason I don’t like getting into the water at the beach, and that’s because my contact lenses would fall out, so I have to wear dorky goggles at the beach! Not a good look with a bikini…

    • beverly posted on August 26, 2009 at 2:23 pm

      Yes exactly! Alll the beaches I’ve been to don’t have perfect white sand (can’t stand weird stuff underneath my feet) and cold water… torture…

      I used to have contact lenses too so I hear ya – I basically never went to the beach/ocean all those years I had em 😛

    It looks just so beautiful, Bev. I’m one of those weird people who actually like cool/cold water and surf, but I’m sure I would love swimming around in that beautiful blue water.

    So, when do we get the wedding story? 😉
