Our holiday was speeding towards the end and it stays unbelievable how time flies while one is having fun.
The night before our last day we drove around admiring all the lights people have decorated their houses with (diwali).
On our last day we went on a boat trip.
Let me state here and now for those that dont know me well, I am not a water person. I was not impressed with the whole swimming with dolphins thing, but OMS you have not experienced Mauritius if you dont do a boat trip like we did.
We went up the eastern coast and the sites and experiences were mind blowing. To travel approximately 1 to 2 km into the sea and still be able to stand waist deep in the water is a mind bender.
I am going to stop waffling and try not to smother you with pictures 🙂
Our skipper for the day.
We snorkelled close to the shipwreck and the sightings were incredible.
We visited Île aux Fouquets that is an old abandoned lighthouse that was built in 1865. Apparently quite a few battles were fought between the French and the English around this little island.
This lighthouse guided ships to the harbour of Mahébourg, on the southeast coast of Mauritius. Mahébourg was the original French settlement and remained an important port until the early 20th century, when the British moved all port operations to Port Louis on the opposite side of the island. The light station has been abandoned for many years and has fallen into ruin. Located on a small island about 5 km southeast of Point du Diable and 15 km east of Mahébourg.
We cruised further north and visited a nice bay where a small waterfall was seen up close after our skilled skipper dodged some scary rocks.
Then me and Charmain went parasailing. Once again I need to clarify that I am a big wuss when it comes to heights but this was definitely one of the highlights even though it was over way to quickly.
Our last stop for the day was at the island of Le Touessrok. We had some lunch, cocktails and the woman did some shopping at the beach shacks.
Once again not even pictures can give a true reflection of the beauty.
We headed back after an awesome fun filled day.
We spent our last evening on the beach with the Husky’s and way too soon the sun set on an incredible holiday.
Just to let everybody know that we had a great trip up Sani pass in December. Keep your eyes peeled for the report. 🙂
