Feel greatly refreshed and energized from my marathon slumber yesterday, so after a hearty breakfast head to the beach by myself. Prom was a feeling a little bit under the weather so she decided to lie in. At the beach i attempt to learn how to swim on my own, the water is too tempting not to - think I'm getting the hang of it! Nah not really.. Anyway, I watch all the swimmers/surfers having an absolute blast. Damn, I need to pick up swimming ASAP.

Then Prom joins in and we head out to check out Hikkaduwa beach. About a 40 minute ride from Unawatuna. ( Two bus rides - bus to Galle and from Galle to Hikadduwa).

As expected the Hikkaduwa stretch is chockablock with people - but we pick a nice restaurant and chill out. Get one terrific massage done here! Head back to Unwatuna, after stopping at the Galle Handicraft showroom in Galle (Worth checking out).

Watch the sunset from Sun n Sea at Unwatuna, which has a restaurant on a deck stretching out over the sea. So the sea is right beneath you and the place offers a breathtaking unhindered view of the horizon.. As usual, when watching natural beauty in its entire splendor, I always end up feeling very humbled. Gorgeous sunset.

We come back for Dinner to Sun n Sea, which unfortunately was not a great experience. Absolutely the worst glass of Red wine imbibed without doubt and dinner was also no great shakes. But the place and the setting was simply beautiful so all was not lost.
