I could not sleep the previous night as I kept on thinking of my cancelled swimming with the whales programme – in abeyance, postponed, called off etc etc etc. The thought of touching the whales were only in the imaginative mode. Shoot !!! But after looking back at the train trip to Galle yesterday, I came to my senses and that I should count my blessings as I had the opportunity to travel the world compared to the people that I shared company with on the train the previous day. Alhamdulillah (Praise be to Allah). As the saying goes ‘ every cloud has a silver lining’. Maybe someone up there wants me to share the ‘moments’ with that someone ‘special’. In shaa Allah ( God Willing).
After a late breakfast I decided to spend the day at the beach ….. becoming a ‘beach bum’ as there were no options left in Mirissa. I was really spoilt to the maximum by the mother of the owner of the guesthouse which I was staying by the size of the breakfast helpings. I began walking towards the beach and when I saw the sight of it, my jaw dropped due to the god blessed beauty of it. Not a bad day after all !!!! Skimpy attired ladies swimming and wading in crystal clear waters, a few local gigolos, I presumed, were lying on the beach enjoying the midday sun. The lousy feeling of missing the swimming with the whales was totally gone.
With a glass of iced tea beside me, on a beach chair underneath the big beach umbrella …. I was really a BEACH BUM today …. and looking forward for the beach party tonight ……. lost that lousy feeling and now I have to find that someone ‘special’ ……. ahem
