Our “villa host” Azleem arranged a snorkelling
Once on board, we were given cool towels to refresh ourselves, and each time after snorkelling. Fresh, chilled water and a fresh water shower was also provided. It’s these little things that really matter.. and made the snorkelling trip fantastic 🙂 Totally enjoyed ourselves and we were astounded by the incredibly visibility of the waters – all clear azure and full of brilliantly coloured fish. I’ve snorkelled many times before, but NEVER anything like this. Not by a long shot. I loved the warm waters (no shivering and squawking trying to get in!), the ability to look right down onto the ocean floor, and swim amongst the fish. It was magical 🙂
4 hours from 10:30PM to past 2PM… and we applied sunscreen FIVE times. Unfortunately, we must’ve missed parts like Chris’ lower back and my butt… because HOLY CRAP WE WERE BURNT! Didn’t realise/feel it ’til the evening when it all flared up and we turned bright red. The next day, I was so sore I couldn’t even sit down… my poor bottom 🙁 Moaned pitifully to Azleem and a little later, he appeared at our villa with some medicated gel from the clinic – how sweet! Man we’re idiots though. But I don’t know how it could’ve happened, so angry because the next day was spent feeling sorry for ourselves and not being able to move/sit!
At least the pain was worth it, heh, ‘cos the snorkelling and swimming was excellent 🙂

I’m on top of the world!! Or at least the yacht.
Fishie. Yeah I know, our camera sucked.. the water’s actually perfectly clear (not murky and dark as in the pic)
2 fat fishes 😉

Heading home after hours of snorkelling….
….where we swam some more outside our water villa 🙂
What does 4 hours swimming in the middle of the day get you? A friggin’ painful sunburn!!!
And thus we spent most of the remaining days lounging around and… sleeping 😛
