      The loft room is amazing however if you look hard there are some rough bits, the hotel is having some minor renovations lets hope the problems get resolved. The food is excellent but you may be sharing it with chipmunks and crows as some of the guests insist on feeding them this needs to be stopped. Facilities are second to none, a full gym, spa, two souvenir shops and large swimming pool.

      Well stocked

      Blue whale

      I set off early this morning whale watching or 'whale chasing' as would be a more apt description. After spending two hours heading into rough seas, I spotted the unmistakeable blow hole of the whale and then it dived down into the ocean. What a sight and what ...

      ... sight of the full-moon through the vehicle glass... obviously there was no time to photograph it ... we were rushing up the mountain to spot the Ceylon Blue Magpie, of course!

      A fulfilling trip indeed. What better way of enjoying the sightings of endemic species and spectacular views of the landscape, sun-rise and full moon than with great company of family and friends.

      Visited Sinharaja Forest Reserve in January ...

      ... The book illustrates how difficult it is for those on our relatively isolated, protected continent to understand the constant and on-going dance of Russia /China/ India, Russia/Germany/ the Middle East, etc. the book was published in 2012 and it makes the present conflict in Ukraine almost a foregone conclusion . Reading it as I travel here is almost a study tour. Ah well, there comes a time in any long trip where ...

      Let's move on, lots more to see.

      ... me it was certainly worthy of a photograph before moving on."

      As an added bonus, and at no extra charge dear reader, I shall throw in a photo of one of the lovely atrmospheric little streets that criss-cross the whole Fort area and that should suffice for this section but still lots more to see and do in the Fort including me indulging in my speciality of being seriously under-dressed. Again!

      Stay tuned.

      Our last day with our guide Dhanu who has been fantastic. He has been with us throughout Sri Lanka and it was a shame to say good bye. We drove from the tea plantation to the coast for our final destination Koggala, Galle. We have never seen a highway so quiet and this road is great for heading to the coast. It took us around 6hrs but lots of stunning waterfalls and tea fields before the highway then a gorgeous coastal road for the final part. The resort ...
