We even go for breakkie, nowadays. The weather looks a bit better. Until we are ready to leave. It is POURING. By the time we reach the diving center (3 minutes walk) we are soaked!
We find ... Linda and Mark there. Nobody else. I can understand that. If it would be only me. I would not go diving in a weather like that!!! We sail to the other resort where we pick up Richard. 5 of the 14 showed up. We do not mind. Not nice for Glynis, though. And at the end of the day: what do you do when it rains like that? The only issue is that the visibility is a bit less. Same as if there is no sunshine. The air is 26 degrees. The water 28.
The first dive side is a wreck. I prefer wrecks: they are so full of life! This one does not disappoint us, either.
Afterwards, the big question is: are we going back. The big answer is: yes. Like Mark says: we are wet anyway. We are back at 13h and pick up a pizza in the take away of the hotel. Then, we walk back to the hotel from which we are diving. They have a travel agency. We inquire for a one night hotel in Mauritius. It sounds surprisingly organized. The guy calls. The head office will look and get back to us via a person in our hotel, the latest tomorrow morning.
And now, we have to go shopping because, we have visitors tonight! Linda and Mark, which I mentioned a couple of times already, dropping by for the apero and then we go for a meal in the hotel resto. They have an underwater camera and will bring the picture. I am happy to have guests and the pictures would be an added value. But: it is POURING again. The shop is less than 10 minutes away but still. We spend a couple of pleasant hours at home. Then, we go shopping. It is still raining but only kitties and puppy dogs.
We buy some beer, vodka, wine and nibbles for tonight. The ONLY internet café in town is full, although they have like 12 PC's. We come home with the shopping and hubbies leaves again while I write.
My first visitors are 'my' cat and bird, no, they do no visit together.
Mark and Linda arrive and we have apero on our terrace. Mark brought a CD with the underwater pictures. I am very happy with them. Afterwards we go for a meal in the restaurant of our hotel. They are lovely people. I carefully tell people we dove like, half of the world. They can tell that they dove the world. I have the feeling, we did not even hear a little part of the stories, when they leave.
Tomorrow, our final day of diving in the Seychelles.
