Monday 22 August: Martin Wickramasinghe Folk Museum, Swims and Masks

Sadly our last day here, so decided to have our first lie in and after a few swims to visit the local folk museum, also the house of famous sri lankan author Martin Wickramasinghe. Giving glimpse of what life was like on the island up to a century ago, lots of masks and puppets . It was also full of very bouncy squirels

One last little tuktuk ride to the next village wood carver so we could spend our last few roupies on a few more masks and puppets.

Last afternoon of swimming in full moonsoon rain, we seemed the only hotel guests to enjoy the pool in crazy rain .
We then went to play in the waves...they just get better and bigger each time but near impossible to get a good shot whilst being drowned in them.
We also made a cat and skulls sand creations
and spotted a few more huge turtles swimming by.
I am so going to miss the food, weather , temples and water...sadly being collected at 4 am tomorrow for the long journey back
