Shaylagh's birthday was on March 30 and we had a little celebration at the apartment. We had ordered a very nice cake from the bakery just around the corner (see photos). It was delicious! Shaylagh is now very pleased to finally be in the double-digits.

We did not go to the beach the next day. We went on an excursion to the new Aquarium at Pointe aux Piments. It is nothing like the aquarium or Marine Land in North America but very interesting nevertheless. It was nice to be able to see most of the Mauritian species up close including a few species of sharks and some very friendly sea turtles. See photos.

In general, everyone is doing well and we are all deep into vacation mode. Everyone has been careful not to get sun burned. I would say that Melissa is the brownest; Shaylagh is now a tropical blond, and Anna also has a pretty good tan. Amélie is a beautiful little brown baby and the sun has given her hair some brown highlights. As for me, I am darker than I have ever been!

The only constant annoyance wherever we have lived is the bugs, as can be expected in a tropical country. We always have our good share of bites - not only mosquitoes. As for Amélie, we have managed to keep her virtually bite free (she sleeps in a little mesh tent). On the bright side, we are starting to see less insects with the arrival of the dry weather.

Today is Saturday and we're back at the beach just hanging out!
