Flashback

This is a flashback to the last holiday we were so lucky to squeeze in, before the world turned upside down.

We were sitting in Mauritius in January when I said to Paolo - there is a funny flu starting in China... little did we know what it would become.

This was the day before we left this idyllic island. A tropical cyclone was expected in the next 48 hours which explains the stormy clouds. The wind had not arrived. I was still able to do some yoga by the pool.

I wonder when we will all be able to travel again...?

Thank you all for your special comments and favs this week. You are all so wonderfully encouraging.
Good heavens, is that you ? I have never,ever been that supple !

@boatman137 🤣🤣🤣 it is 😜 I started yoga about two years ago. I can nearly stand on my head now 🙈 but I usually have four kids handing off me giggling at me so we usually all end up in a heap on the floor

@seattlite thank you. Paolo’s family have a home here which we are so lucky to be allowed to use. It’s a wonderful place for a family holiday.

Nice shot with the reflection in the waters

Such a wonderful memory! It is amazing to see how much our lives have changed in the past few months and how they will likely continue to be different. Out state has just now mandated we wear masks whenever we are out.
Very neat reflection of your yoga.

It looks like a wonderful place to vacation. I too feel lucky to have done some travelling before the world got hit with this virus. I’m sure things will slowly improve and travelling will increase again At some point, in the future, but I think it will be a long time before the average person will be able to just hop on a plan or ship and go visit a place halfway around the world, just for enjoyment.

Looks like a piece of paradise! And oh, to be so fit!!!
July 16th, 2020  
I couldn’t have done that even as a youth!

...I also like how the corner of the pool leads the eye back into the image ... all the way to the bridge in the background. Nice.

Wow you look amazing :-) and fit right in with this lovely scene. You make me want to try but I won't .....lol
July 16th, 2020  
Wow! Flexible you. Great shot and a beautiful spot!
July 16th, 2020  
Super reflection photo! You’re amazingly flexible! Last time I could pull this off I was like 11 lol. Doesn’t seem like so long ago? Crazy. To good health 🎉

What a great shot and lovely reflection. I am sure it will still take quite some time before we can freely move about again.

@dutchothotmailcom hehe thank you :-)

@bruni ahh thank you so much - I only had three pregnancies as we had twins. I run a lot and in between all the crazy in my life, do some yoga to keep me calm :-)

@thewatersphotos yes masks seem to be the new norm. We have had to wear them for a couple of months now when we go out. I still haven't got used to them. They make me feel very claustrophobic and I didn't realise how much I rely on seeing peoples lips to help understand what they are saying.

@pamknowler absolutely - I don't think any of us could have predict this year. Perhaps the world wanted us all to slow down.

@beryl ahhh thank you - anyone can do yoga :-) so good for the mind, body and soul

@gardencat sadly I think you are so right... luckily all of our home countries have so much beauty so I guess we must embrace this opportunity to explore home more.

@calm I am sure I have been touched up in photoshop ;-) I do enjoy keeping fit though. My husband is amazing and always takes the kids so I can go for my daily run.

@pej2 I am sure you could have with some practise

@ggshearron thank you so much :-)

@lesip awww thank you - you really should give it a try - start out slow - you don't have to stand on your head right at the beginning (or ever). Just very gentle stretching. I love yoga because I really believe anyone can do it. And it is so good for us.

@edorreandresen very beautiful spot - oh do be teleported back there :-)

@elatedpixie hehe thank you and yes, absolutely - to good health :-)

@ludwigsdiana I think you're right :-( you live in the beautiful Western Cape so have wonderful places to explore close to home. You have had quite bad weather haven't you? We are pretty cold here today... the forecast is for very strong winds and a significant drop in temperature from today until Monday the 20th.
July 16th, 2020  
What a great image! You and the pool look wonderful.
July 16th, 2020  
@jamibann thanks so much for following me... and for your kind comments... :-)
July 16th, 2020  
Love the palms, water and reflections! You are quite flexible, not me! :)
July 16th, 2020  
What a stretch/move/position... what a recollection.
July 16th, 2020  
Wonderful back bend and reflections. I hope travel will be reasonable again while I’m still young enough to go
July 17th, 2020  
How I LOVE the tropics...This (and You!) look beautiful! 4 kids later??? Congratulations for looking after yourself so beautifully!
