Boarding Catamaran Cruises Mauritius from one of the South East hotels, we immediately set sail towards the coral reefs, gaining good perspective of the hills and mountains that the Mauritian coastline is known for. Green sugar cane plantations meeting the white sands and deep blue waters of the shoreline.
Taking up positions of comfort on the Cat’s trampolines, tamrin Mojitos (my new favourite thing) in hand, we invited the breeze and warmth of the sun.
Offshore and in a place of tranquillity we anchored, while some read others chatted, the sun lotion came out, the hat brims grew wider and the skin started to glow with sun-kissed happiness as we enjoyed a few hours at sea. Snorkelling before a delicious lunch, and our return to shore.
With the one and only Chef Jenny Morris.
I’m sorry, but how can I not look smug on one of the best days of my lovely life?
A braai on the boat, can you even imagine. With tofu kebabs for the vegetarians.
Snorkelling the reefs in the lagoon and working up an appetite for lunch. The thing of dreams in this clear warm water.
