We went for an early swim this morning with my mother at one of Welligamma's beach. We hoped to see some coral and fish. The beach wasn't a tourist beach. It was a small fisherman Port. It was cute. The small catamaran were very colorful with the morning light, it was beautiful. But the water was "flou", we couldn't see anything and there was so many current. I was a little bit scared. I swam very far, I hope to see some nice fish when I am at the drop off. But still no fish, so I turn back. Sarah and my mother too didn't see a lot of fish. We went back to the hotel and had a shower and breakfast and we went to Mirissa.
Mirissa is a small surfer town. The beach was very beautiful. It was a moon shaped beach with coconut tree all arround. The water was turquoise color and there were a small natural swimming pool, not deep at all but still protect from the waves. We went for fish hunting but again the water was "trouble" and there was a lot of current. At one point I was trapped in some rocks and I had to use all my strength to get off the rocks. We turn back cause the current was to strong and there were no fish. I saw just a Picasso fish. We went to the natural swimming pool and there, there were some fish. It was pretty but not better than what I've already seen. After the beach we went back to my mother hotel had a shower and went for lunch. We had a very nice grilled fish by the beach, a little bit expensive but it was nice.
After lunch we took a bus to Galle.
When we arrived to Galle, my first impression was bad. There were so many cars, and trafic jam everywhere. But then we saw some bouddhisme procession. Children wearing different kind of costumes were "défiler" on the street. It was nice cause there were so many colors.
Finally I really like Galle, the ancient town is wold heritage and it is very nice and beautiful. We walk along the fort. It was just next to the water. It was a really good walk. The old town is nice as well, the building were no more than 2 or 3 floor, there were all in the colonial style. Small street was bordered by art gallery, cafes and souvenir shops. There was not many cars nor tuk tuk. It was very nice.
We took the bus to Hikkaduwa. As usual it was a local bus. But this time it was packed! Like parisian metro in a strik day and with the hit, it was horrible. I was sweating like a pig. I could feel my sweat dropping along my legs. It was horrible. We waited 10-15 min before it goes. Went it droves It was OK. We could feel the wind.
We arrived at Hikkaduwa, had a shower and went outside. We found a Ayurveda massage. It was so relaxing. It said it is one of the thing to do in Sri Lanka so we tested and we don't regret it.
After that we had dinner and we slept well covered in oil
