    ... were philosophical about not seeing Whales so that we still have that joy to look forward to. Our final morning at the Lighthouse involved another great breakfast and then it was time to join our driver / guide for the trip back to Colombo from where we were flying to Muscat in Oman. The final visit along the way was to a Turtle Hatchery called Kosgoda near Bentota. After the Tsunami this charity had been almost decimated and we only ...

    ... drive the jeep through twisting, wet, and muddy unmade dirt tracks! Through all this, we were trying to eat our breakfast kindly given to us by the hotel. We eventually arrived at the meeting point where all the jeeps for miles around waited as the drivers got their paperwork ready for the park opening. We took the opportunity to finish our food, two cold boiled eggs, a jam sandwich and a banana. Then one by one the hoard of jeeps set off at a ...

The waterway opened out ...

It has been absolutely exhausting but amazing to see some of the work that I will be getting thoroughly involved in.

    At 9.00 we left our hotel and went to the bus station of Tangalle. As we were getting out of the tuk-tuk, a bus going in direction to Galle passed by. It was just departing but we still managed to stop it. It took us approx. 2 hours to get from Tangalle to Galle.
