After two days in Colombo, we left this spectacular view behind so we could heard towards our next destination.
Our first pit stop was at the Elephant Orphanage.
It's always so wonderful to see these gentle creatures up close and personal.
Our friend in Colombo called his sister who lives along the route we were travelling and she graciously invited us to her home ...
She was told that I am vegetarian so made sure there were dishes we all could enjoy.
We spent a wonderful two hours visiting with our new friends in their lovely home.
And then it was time to say goodbye.
The final leg of our journey was to The Lavender House in Pussellawa.
What a wonderful birthday I had! This 1890's bungalow was spectacular. Even the kids were impressed! But more on that tomorrow. Hope everyone has a fantastic Friday! Best wishes and blessings, Tammy
