On the last day that we were in the Maldives, we celebrated our 12th anniversary.
It was an absolutely amazing day that started with this at our breakfast:
We didn't dive on this day since we are believers in the 24 hour, no diving before flying policy. So, instead, after our delicious breakfast we headed out in a kayak.
We came to this little stretch of sand that the resort put this hammock on. Could you resist? We couldn't!!
So, we thought we would lounge around for a little. Then we kayaked to this other little island and snorkeled. Yes, I admit it.... if we can't dive, we at least try to snorkel to see anything else we possibly can in the water :)
While we were arriving to this island, we caught sight of a large school of small sardines. Then, to our surprise and delight, a baby Black tip shark swimming amongst them...having a tasty meal, we assumed! We were not bale to get a picture since they swim so quickly and move away even quicker when something approaches it. We were quite excited though!
After we returned to the island we went for our "before flying 30+ hours" massage. Again, it was wonderful! Even though I already posted this picture, I figured to complete this whole day in the post, why not post it again!
The rest of the day we spent lounging around by the pool, taking fotos, relishing in our last day in this Paradise. Then....
I had a surprise dinner planned for my husband!
There were many options, and I chose to have a private dinner on the beach.
They led us through this candle lit walkway to this spectacular tent to watch the sunset and celebrate together, alone!
It was so romantic! The Thai
food was quite delicious and so much of it! Sorry that some of the food pictures are blurry, but I was a little preoccupied to worry. At least I took them :)
We had beautiful flowers and candles on the table. They dug out holes in the sand to light up
the tent. They even had a cake for us... after the delicious Thai fruit, coconut, sticky rice and condensed milk desert! We decided to have them bring it to the room.
And to both of our surprises.....
this is what we walked in to find:
We were both so surprised.... this is all rose petals and towels like two birds. think that is it? We did, until:
It was really a special, memorable evening.
