A fish with an attitude

A number of paradise-like islands in the middle of the Indian Ocean… The Seychelles.

One of the highlights for me was the diving.

It might look like an easy motive but it´s not, I promise. It´s a different ballgame to take pictures under water. The creatures you meet accept your presence up to a certain point. If you get to close they are off in a hurry. No posing from this guy.

There is no such thing as..

paradise.. but The Seychelles surely comes close!

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.

Mon meyer ve.  (best wishes)

Divine Caribbean view!

Not to many tourists find their way to the southwestern coastline of Dominican Republic!
Got a feeling that this group, does not belong to the ordinary “all-inclusive” category tourists.
Had a short friendly conversation with the man. Cant remember the US state he mentioned as their home!
some christian faith group.. Mennonites?   Anybody has a clue?

By the way, we are not far from Paraíso  (paradise) You´ll find it between La Cienaga and Enriquillo!
