We took it easy and had a leisurely breakfast before checking out at about 10am and embarked on the 3.5hr journey to Negombo. After checking into the Silver Sands Resort, we took a walk along the road which is a tourist area and randomly chose a restaurant for lunch.
Then we headed to the city centre, but there wasn’t much to see, save for a few churches, as Negombo has a large Christian population, due to its Dutch heritage.
St. Mary's Church
St. Sebastian's Church
We spent the rest of the afternoon by the beach.
Yiu Yiu can't wait to get to the beach
She really loves the water...
...while Yan Yan was contented just playing sand
Our last sunset in Sri Lanka...till we meet again!
After dinner consisting of fried rice and noodles, garlic fried chicken with rice, and beef curry with rice, I stayed back at the hotel with Yan Yan as she was getting sleepy, while the rest took a walk outside the hotel for some last minute souvenir shopping.
