Boats, Planes, more boats, and a golf cart

It was a long day of travel for both Lyndsey and I. We had to get up early around 7am which disrupted our daily ritual of morning swim and breakfast routine. The boat ride to the Hadahaa atoll took fifty minutes. We thought it was a bit suspicious that we were not offered the customary bottle of water and face cloth cooled in mint water."What no cooled face clothes?" Later, we figured out that Alila Villas resort is the first resort to be environmentally certified in the Maldives. So, no plastic bottles nor toiletries. All shampoo and body lotion was in beautiful ceramic containers. A small step for mankind.......WE were also on a boat full of technology inclined tourists. It was fun to watch them click away.....
