The Christmas holidays are over, so its definitely time I came back and spent some time on this little space of mine!
Our Christmas Holidays.
We have had such a wonderful few weeks all off together. The boys were off school for 4 weeks so we definitely fully switched off and relaxed. Mark had to go to the UK to do some interviews for new staff but other than that he was home with us the whole time.
I think having the 4 weeks over Christmas helped to have other focuses apart from Christmas day itself. Don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas, but with a shorter holiday I feel like that is all you have time to think about and it can be a bit intense!
It’s been a little while but it’s Seychelles Time again!
La Digue is the third most populated island in the Seychelles. From Praslin it is a 15 minute ferry trip. Going to La Digue really is like going back in time, its so quiet and life is slow there!
We recently took Arthur for the first time with Mum and Dad. This was Arthur’s first time on a boat, he was really good and loved looking overboard, particularly at the boats wake.
La Digue is a Awesome place to hire bikes, its the best way to get around the island and its really safe as there are hardly any cars at all. We decided not to this time as we wanted to be able to keep Arthur in the shade so the push chair was the best for that. We walked around the North side of the island which is nice and quiet, a really beautiful walk.
We followed the road around to the George Camile gallery, Arthur had lots of fun crawling around there, although I think thats more due to the fact the floor was nice and cool rather than him being particularly interested in the art! To be honest he kinda took over the place!!!
Dad bought a nice Embossed copper picture in there, they had been looking forward to visiting his gallery as his stuff had caught their eye on Mahe, last time they were visiting in the Summer. Mark and I house sat for George Camile over new year so it is nice that they now own some of his work. If you would like to check out his website take a look here
This time we didn’t walk round to the Coconut plantation where the gorgeous Anse Source d’Argent beach is as it was a little far to go without bikes and plus the walk around the North coast took us longer than expected! Anyway here is a picture from a previous trip as its really pretty so you might want to see 🙂 It’s in the National Geographic top 10 beaches in the world so it can’t be half bad right!!
So thats it for now! Hope you enjoyed a little bit of Seychelles time, see you next time!
