Saturday was my last day in Tamarin. I had breakfast, put on my bathing suit and took a walk. It is possible to wade through the water where the river meets the ocean. A town is on the other side including a place to rent kayaks and paddle boards.
I waded and walked around the small town to get a feel of what it looked like. Women and Children were doing normal activities of laundry and playing, completely oblivious to the tourist lurking about.

Since the taxi was going to pick me up at 10 for the South Tour, I wanted to eat as late as possible. At 9, I went to the main porch. There was a single setting of blue and white china. I sat down and the sweetest Mauritian woman came to greet me.
