A day at the beach

Part of Flic en Flac beach - Le Morne Brabant in the background.
We hadn't been to Flic en Flac since last year. As it is a typical tourist place we don't go there often. None of us are swimmers, so why spend hours at a beach?! We like to walk on the beach, which we did today too - wearing jogging shoes and jeans, I bet we didn't look like tourists - hence the gazing from the tourists?! :))
The weather wasn't with us today; it was partly cloudy and when we were at the tiny public beach at Wolmar it started raining. It was just a shower; it didn't prevent us from walking to the end of the road.
Some of the cottages at La Pirogue Hotel - seen from the backside.
In spite of visiting the island several times before I settled here, we'd never been to Wolmar, about 2 km (1,2 miles) down the road. Flic en Flac is originally a small fishing village with approx 2000 inhabitants. With all the tourist I've no idea how many people are living there... On the other hand - Wolmar is entirely given over to tourism, with at least 5 resort hotels, like; Hilton, La Pirogue, Sofitel, Sugar Beach etc.

Beautiful bougainvillea outside one of the hotels.

It's not monkeys - it's bird nests.
