Where the Mountain Meets the Ocean | SkywatchFriday Week 12

This is the view from the other side of the mountain called Le Morne Brabant, which is very close to the seaside village of Flic-en-Flac in South Mauritius. We had stopped for a short while at this point, to savour the breathtaking views, while driving down the scenic coastal route back to our hotel in the north-east of the island. As they say about Mauritius, no place is too far from anywhere!

As this shot was being framed, the sky was beginning to turn grey. Soon, dark cumulonimbus clouds took over and within minutes, the patch of blue was gone!

As soon as it started to drizzle, we climbed back into the car, and then, headed eastwards amid torrential rain. For the next thirty minutes, it was just the narrow serpentine country roads, flanked by sugarcane fields on either side, that guided us home.

That evening, home was more like a feeling, as if we were coming home to something that was long lost and forgotten, pushed out of sight and mind by the years that were to come.


Linking this to #SkywatchFriday, where you will find some amazing sky photographs from all over the world. Also, linking it with This Sky and Some Reflections blog hop shared by Parul on her blog every month.

  1. Love the sky and that shot, Esha. As you spoke of home, it made me think that home is a feeling. We end up finding it sometimes in the house we live and sometimes with the people we miss. Thanks much for linking up. Always a joy.

  2. That’s such a gorgeous picture. And you created a just as gorgeous a picture with your words Esha. That winding road with fields on both sides and the rain – could imagine it all.

  3. Beautiful scenery, Esha. Your narration is a sumptuous cherry on the top of this picturesque view taking the reader along on a nostalgic ride. ❤️
