While I didn’t find Mirissa Beach to be the most beautiful beach I’ve ever visited, I did enjoy seeing the blue whales there. The early morning light made the other boats in the harbor look like paintings. Mirissa Beach is on the southern part of Sri Lanka, and I also enjoyed taking the train from Colombo to arrive there. At night, the restaurants grilled fresh fish right on the beach, and it made for a perfect setting to unwind and relax. One day, while walking to the beach, I almost tripped over a monitor lizard, and ,well, let’s just say it cured my fear of spiders and other bugs. Nothing has ever been scarier than seeing this “thing”. Not my favorite animal, that’s for sure! Leave me a comment and vote for your favorite picture!!
