Typical Mauritius Anniversary

31 May

This is my (Alex) First attempt at a post.  I am pretty sure I will be amazing at it but bear with me through the bumps.

After our daily very good and large breakfast we went dolphin watching. We were a little skeptical because we very Americanly didn’t know for sure there were a lot of dolphins but we were wrong, there are a lot and they are large. We also saw some snorkelers trying to snorkel with the dolphins but I was skeptical that they could actually swim, so that was entertaining to watch.

After that we got the suits on and laid around like professionals.  Kate was super stylish as usual. Of course We had to get drinks, I had some beer but Kate’s coconut drink photographs a little better.

Next we went out on the paddleboat because we could.  Out on the water we recited our love poems that we wrote to each other early that morning and then sang our wedding song together. Either that or took pictures of fish, I cant remember which.

Kate then got a lovely massage while I went for a run on the beach.  The run was very hard in the deep sand but I wanted to say that I did it and it was very beautiful.  Pre-dinner drinks were decent and 50% off which was good because drinks are definitely pricey.  Dinner was at a hotel restaurant.  it was an A for presentation but B- for goodness. I think we were just expecting more.  The Hilton Gave us a cake and champagne so we cant complain too much.

All in all a great day in island paradise.


I almost forgot, I got kate a bouquet of local flowers – it turned out really neat.
