Bragging Rights


Yesterday, we went to Grande Terre for a swimming competition. The swimmers were taken to Bambo Island by boat and had to race back to Musical Beach, a distance of 2km, as fast as their little arms and fins could take them. mana_trini  was participating, along with three other friends, not I.  I truly didn't expect him to be in the top ten; he doesn't swim much (spearfishing is totally different), and he only trained three times.

But he came in 3rd! out of 150 swimmers!

Go JuJu Bean!

We spent the day there, picnicking, visiting, lounging, getting sunburned, listening to a djembe session, eating homemade crêpes (thanks to that super-fast swimmer of mine. :D), reading, and just enjoying the beautiful vista.
