PA.....the SEYCHELLES !
D2 and I decided to take a totally laid-back vacation in the Seychelles islands, off the east coast of Africa. It was like paradise on Earth. The sea was so pure and unbelieavably clean we could see fishes down to a depth of 60 metres or more. There were numerous unspoilt, pristine beaches in various islands.
We went Big Game Fishing in a large Chartered Cruiser and landed a 26 kg beauty .......it was a kingfish, a close cousin of the tuna. It took two of us to hold it steadily. This was the biggest fish we ever held. It was to bring much casino luck to both our chief boat pilot and myself that very night.
This exotic group of islands is pronounced .....sea shells
