Hubbo is working this morning and I have just enjoyed a long and therapeutic fix of sun, sand and solitude with pooch. As I walked along our lovely long beach with the sun in my face, the distant silhouetted figures of fellow walkers took me straight back to Fihalhohi and its daily afternoon per-amble. There are several other triggers that unfailingly transport me back to the Maldives and I wonder what everyone else's are?
Mine are :
The sound of small propeller type planes.
The gentle lapping sound of the tide when there is little or no wind.
The sound of small speedboats.
Crows in the morning.
The resident grey herons out at Hilbre Island near where we live.
That funny chocolaty, smokey, musty smell of humid air.
Any more, anyone? Or am I mad? (Don't answer that)
