What a place. We’re ensconced in a beautiful little guest house called the “Beau Vallons Bungalows” right on the beach here in Beau Vallon, on the west coast of Mahe Island. (Anyone taking a family holiday in the Seychelles would be well advised to come stay here!). First night was in a much more formal hotel which we didn’t really find to our taste and so we took a walk down the beach yesterday morning with our luggage to our current lodging. We’re taking a well earned rest and doing lots of swimming in the luke-warm azure sea, as well as long walks and explorations. Just arranging to borrow a scooter from our hosts for an island tour later today or tomorrow and we’re also looking forward to a scenic flight around these paradise islands.
Meanwhile, we’ll be checking up on weather and, assuming no hurricanes or tornadoes, we’ll depart Seychelles International for Kruger Mpumalanga International on Wednesday afternoon, to fly the 20 hour leg through the night. We’ll depart there in turn at about 12h00 on Thursday to arrive at the Springs Airfield at about 14h00 Thursday afternoon (27 August, for the date challenged). We very much look forward to getting home to our beautiful country and friends and family, and we’d love to see anyone who can get away from work to welcome us home at the airfield.
