It's the season of boat rides,"aperobeach", swimsuits and sunscreen! A few minutes of 
snorkeling to rediscover the seabed and pick up few searurchins to savor with a glass of wine later
on Bernache island. We enjoy the tropical fruits' profusion to fill up with vitamins. we buy our 
coconut water to the strolling merchant on the beach, and admire the blooming flamboyants everywhere
on the island.

Summer is also synonymous with high season, the hotels are full, the streets of Grand Bay or
Flic en Flac are more lively, shops welcome with a smile, tourists looking to bring back the souvenirs
of their stay in Mauritius . And then we meet the most daring foreigners, at the local market of 
Goodlands or Flacq whoare looking for the best deals!

But summer is also the end of the year and all the festivities: Christmas, New Year's Eve. We 
decorate our local tree, a coconut tree or an araucaria, we stroll in the local Christmas markets 
to find the little gift that will please the last born of the cousin, with whom we spent our 
childhood in the family beach house.

And finally, we are getting ready for future cyclones that may pass on our island: pruning large trees, 
fixing roofs, verification of generator in case of power failure.

Maurice comes out of his winter lethargy and puts on his summer colors!
