16.08.17 18:01 local time. Wedding couple having photos taken - all the best for the couple in their married life!
Ha! Just clicked in at 18:21 pm (14:21 pm GMT time) and saw folks waving at the webcam! Yep, they know were are here! ;)
"Happy Birthday Alexandria." Aw, nice. Drawing in the sand is so much fun. We used vacation at the beach every summer and we loved writing huge messages or drawings, in hopes people in planes would see them. One of our favorites was the Kilroy guy...lol.
Given what's going on in the world right now I think we can all be forgiven for a bit of light heartedness. It's just sand... Since when did the world get so negative about a bit of harmless fun in the sand!
Hi AMANDA, I agree totally with you. I was reading skyline's regulations and they're very clesr about not posting negative comments and are normally very good at deleting these. When (?!) I win the lottery I'll be standing in front of that camera, and all the other maldives' cameras, saying hello to all you skyliners!! But for the meanwhile I'll just watch and enjoy, and be a bit envious.
At least 20 people on the beach at 17:55. Never saw so many. And of course the special ones working so hard to let the world know who or where they are.
Well I think the lady who has drawn those shapes in the sand and thengot filmed by a drone needs a corn field to play in.
can't they just found something less pathetic to do in that amazing place...
They're on holiday, they can do what they like in the sand as far as I'm concerned, but it DOES detract from the beautiful scene beyond.
Nice to see people enjoying their holiday, I really cant see a problem with writing in the sand, its only sand after all and nothing permanent
you guys are getting a little better with the drone!!!
My understanding is that the seaweed situation can get overwhelming on some beaches and thus to preserve the beach it is not uncommon to bury the seaweed on the beach. To haul it off would take too much sand with it while leaving it where it lands causes problems for swimmers and other tourists. Not sure that is what is going on here but seems plausible. I have witnessed this in the US, Cancun and other areas.
Trish, I figured out why he was digging in the sand. He is burying the seaweed. The hole is waist deep, he dumps it in and then stomps it down.
