Arugam Bay: Paradise?
Day 3 in paradise...
Well, day 1&2 were in Hotel Paradise - which was anything but. Just a dark, cramped, family bungalow with the main road as our, not so beautiful, vista. But thankfully we've now moved to Paradise Sands Hotel which is more what we were hoping for when we ventured out on the 4 day trip here to the East Coast.
We now have a beautiful cabana on the beach and a few hammocks to relax in!
Arugam Bay is an eclectic mix of Aussie accented Sri Lankans calling "g'day mate!" as you pass them in the street and white people attempting to surf with varying success.
Otto came a cropper yesterday, trying to use the tight rope line as a finish line for his running race. He didn't so much cross through the line as get bounced off it with a major slapdown to the sand. No lasting damage but he may have a nice shiner on the next few photos!
We've found a bar that shows rugby, cricket and football - so Mikes has definitely found his slice of paradise. We got marooned in said bar last night during a monsoon storm reminiscent of the Bacardi advert from years ago which didnt seem too big a problem!
And the sun has reappeared today as well. Yey!
Still waiting to hear confirmation of anyone coming to visit...Shirls - get those flights booked to Phuket in December!
Everyone else who's thinking about it - let us know dates and we can let you know where to book flights to.
Missing you all xx
