Somewhere between Faja and Cachaco. Taking a break after a long day of trailing the mountains and valleys on the Island of Sao Nicolau in Cape Verde. Still we need a couple of hours by foot in the dark before reaching Belindas restaurant in Ribeira Brava. June 9. 2014.
I took a very good decision. I made a flight reservation southeast (for a change) and ended up on this special place south of the equator. The Seychelles. The picture is from Beau Vallon beach at the island of Mahé.
The season for watching Whale Sharks in the Seychelles is from August to the end of October with some variations.. If you go another period of the year there are other interesting stuff to see as well. I promise!
The Eco system appears to be in balance, people in general seem happy and the two Giant tortoises definitely had their moment in paradise this morning. (got my attention at breakfast doing their donkey like love noise)
The sea turtle I met yesterday when diving at the “Ave Maria” rock! White tip reef sharks often seen at that spot, but we were not lucky on this dive. Millions of other under water creatures made me happy anyway!
In one of the images you see the sun drop behind Silhouette island.
Jemmy posing at his restaurant at Grand Anse in La Digue, the smallest of the three principal islands in Sheychelles. The rhythm of life here is slow, main transportation is bicycle and ox cart.
Finally treasure island?? Well actually it´s Coco island.
