Relaxing start to the day as we negotiated a later than usual start time with Ranjith. 5 hours drive along some of the coastline was spectacular accompanied with dodging the buses, cows, pedestrians et al. Saw the ‘posts’ that the stilt fishermen traditionally used however the only tradition established now is their request for photo money we were told. Arrived at a beautifully positioned hotel by the sea…we have a stunning room overlooking the crashing waves and greenery…our only problem is how are we going to turn the sound of the waves down at night???? Tomorrow we explore Galle Fort.
