We woke early to get a long breakfast on the beach, get a swim, collect my lovely new necklace, swim in the pool , shower and pack before getting a tuk tuk to Galle (300rs).

We saw the town in less than a couple of hours, It is a narrow street small place surrounded by walls that you can walk around. Many places were closed due to being out of season, although there were still many gem shops around there wasn't really anywhere to go to eat and not much to do.

After checking train times, walking around part of the new and old town we walked around the walls of the old town (befriended by some dogs) and watching cricket played by locals. It was amazing how some people scaled the fort walls in bare foot and others were jumping off the walls into the water for money for tourists. It poured down at sunset so we headed back for an amazing dinner and another early night before our early train ride.
