SEA­SIDE GET­AWAY

Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - LIFE -

My chil­dren, sens­ing my de­pres­sion, per­suaded me to ac­com­pany them to the sea­side last week­end. Ho­tels of­fered very good deals and we stayed at Hikka

Tranz. The ho­tel was packed with Sri Lankans and a few for­eign­ers. My room had a bal­cony over­look­ing the sea where I loved to sit read­ing while look­ing at the sea. It was blue in the dis­tance and as the waves foamed into shore be­came a soft green. A clump of rocks near­est to shore re­sem­bled ele­phants in wa­ter, which gave me a feel­ing of se­cu­rity. I was sure that the Lord of the jun­gle, also the sym­bol of my party would pro­tect me through day and night. It was an op­por­tu­nity for prime time with my grand­chil­dren who when not with me were in the wa­ter or feed­ing the tur­tles. The food was ex­cel­lent at the ho­tel, a wide spread of ev­ery con­ceiv­able meat, seafood and veg­eta­bles.
