So it has now been almost a week off the boat for me and Liam. Its been nice and its seems to be working out better and better for our teething man. The routine is morning walk to the dive shop usually to say bye to the divers for the day then off to breakfast, then a swim in the sea and nap by like 9:30-10am.
Day 1 - Waffles
The afternoons have been different each day, we had a day of eating waffles and walking about with some friends and a nice massage for me.
The waffles can be found at Bloom cafe on the walking street. It is the best place for a real good freshly made waffles. The place itself is very hip and more urban than island which I guess is a nice change from the island feel. They also do rooms upstairs. More like hostels but real trendy ones. It seems that they are picking up on the nice trendy hostels on the island which im pretty impressed with. Will try and update on some of the nicer hostels on the island later.
Day 2 - Beach
Day 2 , we had a day with my friend S and her baby, looking for accommodation for my parents and a trip to the other side where we had a little late lunch at Castaway resort on Sunrise beach (or second lunch since we had the first at my friends place) such a beautiful place with amazing food. Its so calming there and great to have the babes crawl about in the sand as its got great shading from the sun.Sunrise beach is lovely and I really would’ve loved to live on that side. Maybe a little later in the season if we can find a reasonable place.
Day 3 - Morning off for dad
Day 3 was the first time we stayed in for the whole morning cause T finally got a morning off. There are no days off for our awesome instructor here so a life on a holiday island is not really a holiday for some. It was a nice quiet morning then a quick lunch as a family which is pretty rare since T usually has lunch on the boat between dives.
Day 4 - More beach and hermit crab
This day was a little special for one of our friends C whom celebrates his birthday. We had breakfast at his favorite Café Lipe. Then for lunch we walked over to the Sunrise Beach and hung out at Castaway. Here is where our little man for the first time met a hermit crab. It was an interesting first meet. He was curious and was keen to pet it. It was definately a funny sight for us as he tries to touch the little crab with his little hands. Although it wasnt as succesfu as one would hope. The crab was to fast for him. Maybe next time. 😉
Meeting the hermit 🦀🐚
Well the week has certainly gone by fast and we are getting into somewhat of a routine. Im hoping for the teeth to come through as soon as possible so that he wont have to deal with the pain anymore.
Hope you’ve enjoyed the read. Till next time...
Have a fantastic day! ☀️Xx
