Arugam Bay Beach Day

It's always a good idea to plan a rest day into a long trip, and for this trip we chose to spend it at the beach in Arugam Bay.
Hey, this is in draft right now because I'm just trying to clear out the backlog. photos are up, along with some notes, but no guarantees where the links go.


Slept in until 8:45
Had breakfast outside the room, listening to the waves crash like thunder. then went down a small alley to the beach. Set up beach umbrellas and towels, then Greg went into the water before he took our older one in. Very powerful. Waves crested well over his head and trough at waistline our lower. Strong pull back, actually skinned his knees and the top of his foot trying to stay put. It's easy to imagine now just how large the tsunami would have been.
 Kacey went back to the hotel to start laundry. Greg stayed with kit on beach building sand castles and trying to prevent the umbrellas from blowing away.


Yes, that's a cow on the beach.

Lunch at Bay Vista, chicken and prawn nasigoreng with mango Lassi and a ginger ale.

The kids needed a nap, so we stayed in the unlit air conditioned room listening to the waves. Dinner at Emma's beach ...on the beach. Small camp fire, mellow ambient music, even a trio of puppies.
Kacey had a delicious forest chicken and a lion lager while watching the Silver Moonlight glisten off the midnight blue waves as the red-orange fire danced in the cool breeze above the Sands.
Would have been perfect if our both kids hadn't decided there was nothing on the menu they would eat and pitched a fit about how their grilled cheese sandwiches didn't have enough of the cheese they didn't like. Sigh.
Walked back home, checked on the laundry (still drying). Went to sleep.
