Our wedding anniversary weekend getaway

Last Friday,the Mister and I left for Diani to celebrate our wedding anniversary- because lovers should celebrate their milestones- regardless of their magnitude.

Last year, we celebrated the birthday and our wedding anniversary in Los Angeles.

This year, in the spirit of ‘Tembea Kenya’ (Tour Kenya) we decided to stay home and explore a few hidden gems.

We started off the three-day, moon-lit tryst at the Maji Beach Boutique Hotel in Diani on Friday evening.

The first evening was basically nap time after dinner because we were all knackered a good one.

On Saturday I woke up rejuvenated and dragged the mister for a swim after breakfast.

And what a delightful weekend it was.

Apart from celebrating it with my partner in crime, the Maji Beach Boutique turned out to be one of the grandest places I have been to.

How to be in Dubai on a budget. Also I met a camel named Mallik.

The food was trés bon. I especially loved their baked lobster with cheese and their Sous chef took great delight in showing off on the fresh Oysters that we had for dinner on Sunday.

The Lobster was out of this world and tasted as delicious as it looks.

The vista of the ocean from our room was overwhelming. It was as if we were at the sea with the wind on our faces and the water lapping at our feet.

The view from the patio at night was otherworldly.

The view from the patio at night was otherworldly. The blood moon was a sight to behold. Most people believe that the blood moon brings deeper understanding within ourselves, elevating our minds to the highest power. Well?

Late in the night as we sat outside the balcony of our beach house soaking it all in, the aroma of the ocean and the din of other joy-lovers would waft to our room, creating a beautiful orchestra of feelings and nature.

If sunsets are poetic in Nairobi, here, they were straight from an Allan Poe.

On Sunday evening, in what turned out to to be the highlight of the night, we took our champagne and ran to the beach and stood silently in the breathtaking sight of the blood moon.

Two souls inhabiting one body watching the same phenomenon.

Diani was good to me and the mini vacation was too short but too worthwhile.

On to the next!

 

P.S

A small favour,

About a month ago or so, cunning little internet terrorists took down our Instagram account-but not our will power or the know-how to create a new one- thank God.
