AmanwellaResortThis is the beautiful Amanwella Resort in Tangalle. We visited in April as we explored the South East of the island.


Click on the photo to enlarge it and then just stare at it to relax. Ahhhhh.


MoonlitClouds

A bright full moon is still visible behind the clouds, and can still create silhouettes of palm trees.

By some odd coincidence, all the guests at this boutique hotel had Nissan X-Trails (ours is the silver one) except one…”One of these things is not like the other.”

A small bay near Unawatuna…we thought about renting a boat, but it looked a little stormy.

One of these things is not like the other!


I don’t think they know the one at the right is a man, man.


He’s got pretty hair though!


Plus they spelled “Bridals” as if they cater to horses…

This is where people in the know go! 😉  C’mon! It’s a palace!

Look at us go!  Capt. KP is in the red, I’m in brown.

Another shot of us sailing…(takes me awayyyyy….and gets a Christopher Cross song stuck in my head….)

UnderConstruction


I liked the different shades of blue on this building under construction. The guy imitating the Beatles is behaving unusually. Most people just wander into traffic wherever they want to.

Hey that’s me!  I got my hair done and had to capture it before the humidity got to it, or I put it up in a ponytail or bun, ruining it.

Our houseman/gardener brings me flowers. God bless him!

This is the King Coconut tree in our garden. If we don’t cut them down, they will bomb us!

Foyer-KingCoconuts1


This struck me as such a very Sri Lankan scene — the orange King Coconuts in front of the antique chest.

Puppy!  Aney….


Snake-1


Visiting a cousin, I heard his dogs barking. This was why — just a really long snake. Apparently the dogs had wrestled with it before.

Snake-3


Clever, huh? He found a way to take the stairs without arms and legs!


I was safely on the balcony above, by the way. And am quite glad that this is not my neighborhood! But it is in the middle of the city.


How’s that for a big ending?
