Another fine day!

Chewsday was a blast.!!!

Pool side relaxing ,oh and a bike cruise too!!

It was mid day before we set off on our little Yamaha v scooter! Our plan was to circumnavigate the island, anti clock wise!

First stop internet hot spot! So after being pointed in the wrong direction by an out of date Telecom map, we finally managed to find a hot spot to post our news letters from.

Then on the scooter with coffee firmly on our list we headed North, or was it west?

Soon found Mamas café that we had seen on the news b4 we left. Couldn't resist it, so in we went.

Lunch and coffee were delicious  ,ooh and BTW we  we saw our friend Pj on a scooter cruising by.

Then we set off to conquer the rest of the island.

We enjoyed the new smooth road just reopened by the air port (Beware of jet blasts the sign said).Very nice of them to reseal it for us!!

Then suddenly there was a loud siren approaching us. it was a big red fire engine, in a hurry. We dully pulled over ,allowed it to pass, and then carried on . Then another approached us from behind (was it the same one who had speed around the island?) So after he had passed us ,it pulled over . stopped and let out a little boy with a school bag, he turned around and waved at the appliance with its siren still wailing away!LOL,very funny. Then he speed off into the distance,presumably to fight the fire!

Well scootering around , its not a bad thing, although very hard to stick to 40 kmhr,dam it!

A cool lagoon beckoned us, so had to stop and have a geezer! Obviously a snorkeling paradise,but the temp was just below 25, a little chilli for a impromptu swim we thought!! We had a brief laze in the sun then resumed our epic journey. Went past the failed Hilton again and thought such a wasted opportunity, all those half finished buildings just rotting away.It was a big scale project,obviously abandoned. What ever!!

One thing I hadn’t seen before, A motor cross bike blasted past us,he was on the dirt verge side of the road! lol. We thought we were standing still. Yes we were,lol!!!

Abrief stop at another lagoon,for a few pics, then off just completing our ride in time for a quick,or not so quick lazy swim at matavera villas.

Job done .
