The French settled on the island in 1642. Tons of history. Island can best be described as a combination of French, African, Indian, and Chinese cultures all rolled into one beautiful one.
Get a hut in St. Leu. Paddle out to the dreamlike crystal blue water. Pumpin' heavy lumps. Fun lefts in my world of rights. First tropical experience. Unknown. Free. Surreal. Warm. Enjoy the local juice and color that night. Salted stoke chowin' down on some Creole grub. Check out what came out of the water cam sessions.
Sad to see this happen to paradise over last weekend. Hopefully some heads got the goods though. Sorry to see a couple locals parished.
"Waves reaching 36 feet high thrashed the Island , leaving two fishermen missing and flooding homes and hotels, on Sunday. The waves were caused by a storm in the southern Indian Ocean that produced a swell Saturday afternoon, the French overseas department's prefect said in a statement.
Waves reaching 13-15 feet were expected through Sunday evening before subsiding Monday, the weather service said."
Let me go back!!! Back to reality this morning I got some good paddling around time in this morning. Good to feel the water warming up and the light lappin' of the ocean again.
