Bentota river and beyond! Part 2

The trips by tuk tuk from The lazy lizard hotel,Galle to the nearest beach were not included in our room rates as earlier read and presumed but once again sadly misleading. So the check out process was not all that comfortable but I didn't make an issue with the manager since I am sure the lady in charge was just using her staff to execute her silly rules. Yeah the tuk tuk ride was inclusive if you booked your life away at this hideout for a good fortnight! Well we were lucky to move on.
The drive to Bentota was inevitably going to be long and tiring with kids on the scene so I planned to include a few memorable pitstops. The first being the lunch. We stopped at the local favourite "Refresh" restaurant, Hikkaduwa. We thoroughly enjoyed the lunch especially the pizza. After lunch we walked along the beachside navigating ourselves through rocks and marsh seaweeds to eventually hop onto a glass bottomed boat and head out to calm seas. The boatsman looked obese and experienced. Albert was very reluctant to join in on this especially since we weren't either dressed appropriately or light on the stomach but he gave in after much family persuasion. So I prayed this one was as smooth and equally educational as I hoped it would be. As we anchored ourselves amongst gigantic sized rocks and facing the beachfront we were amazed to see the underwater life. The fish and coral kept the children enthralled for a long time and in the euphoria of the moment Albert decided to dive in but was soon fearing the aftermath of his decision. Albert enjoyed the waters and so did my youngest Jade who also got dipped in for a bit. After several unsuccessful re-boarding attempts, Albert got help from a fellow boatsman so he hopped or rather struggled from water to boat and then stepped onto our boat which much applause and cheering. It just added to the adventure of it all. The sea turtle catch was proving to be fruitless but for 2000 lkr we were happy with our small boat ride.

The driver then threw in the turtle hatchery and the mask musuem to ensure we didn't miss out on the enroute highlights. We hadnt booked ourselves at Hotel Sunil lanka, aluthgama but at Bentota village hotel , however we couldn't resist the location and view of the former. After admiring the amazing sunset and enjoying the srilankan coffee, we took the 5 minute boat ride to aluthgama beach to Maharajas for our anniversary dinner.
The next day we stepped out and walked toward the aluthgama marketplace to hire a tuk tuk to climb upto the famous Bentota waterfalls which led us to meet with Chamandas our friendly informative and highly versatile tour guide of Bentota waterfalls and beyond. The discovery of Chamandas gave us our first real Sri lankan friend. We picked up local tea from the factory, ate at a village restaurant and shopped at the local market accompanied largely by our local connect Chamandas.

This friendship continued through our remaining days as he chauffered us at mealtimes and provided invaluable insights into the cricket frenzied nation Srilanka.
