Sunday February 19th – Day 46
There were four tours offered today – a trip in a submarine…definitely not for me; a trip to a local fishing village…pass; a trip to Paradise Island Resort but as it was a fifty minute water taxi ride away and we’d just had four days at sea we decided not to bother; the last tour was a guided walking tour around Male…..but we decided to do our own walking tour at our pace…and save a few dollars!!
We spent about one and a half hours on our walk passing the national museum where Vance found some World War 1 relics keeping him interested for a few minutes then into the shopping centre which was just a street with hundreds of shops that all seemed to be just selling shoes – and no I didn’t buy any.
Although it was interesting to explore Male we never got to see a beach so maybe one day we’ll come back for a beach holiday.
Tonight we dined in Restaurant 2 with Justine and Mark. It wasn’t crowded in fact we were the only four in the restaurant – it was such good service!! Mark joked he’d booked the whole place just for us…yeh right but no complaint as he did treat us to a bottle of St. Emilion (Les Aromes de Pavie by Chateau Pavie 2005)….thanks dude.
