Everyday I find myself looking at the sky and the sea and appreciating the various shades of blue. Blue is the colour, of course. The mountains and sugar cane seem to be in almost every view of the island and look stunning illuminated by the Indian Ocean sunshine.
I drove to Grand Baie in the North for an early meeting; the sea is a very special of shade of blue there, almost metallic, it always surprises me.
The second photo was taken a few minutes later, having turned to the West.
This is a fishing area and the hull of the one behind was being worked on by five men, it had been damaged by coral.
The next morning I was up at dawn to go dolphin watching.
Early morning winter sunlight is not so spectacular on the West coast.
Many more boats started to appear with tourists eager to go swimming and snorkelling among the dolphins.
It was getting crowded and so we decided to head for home.
Returning to Black River an hour after sunrise, I was stunned by the blue of the sky, the green of the vegetation and the reflection of both in the lagoon.
It was like a mill pond; beautiful.
