Yala to Galle, Sri Lanka

It’s practically all sandy beaches from the south up to the western coast town of Galle. Lots of fishing communities and surfing and sunning beaches on the west coast for tourists. Also a few spiritual sites for us wandering, searching souls.

Yala stupa.

Beautiful balsa wood trees that were filled with bats.

Fishing boats off the western coast.

The historic Dutch Fort of Galle.

Renovation on the lighthouse.

On the seawall with monks in the background.

Kids walking the seawall.

The peninsula which the fort sits on is a UNESCO site full of small hotels, shops, and restaurants.

Plenty of charming, old Dutch buildings.

The Fort Tower.

Another snapshot of the fort.

 Our hotel.

Our room in a renovated Dutch colonial building.

Uh-oh, mosquito nets. Not a good sign for me, but luckily no mosquitoes here.
