Tropical fruits

 

 

On my recent holiday to Mauritius, being a city boy and all I was struck by how many coconut, papaya, mango and lychee trees and their fruits I saw growing around the island. We need to do the same here with our native fruits. Can you imagine apple trees growing uninhibited on London’s streets. Would certainly help tackle our ‘obesity crisis’.

Down the Coastal Road

 

When driving in the tropics, there’s two things that really lighten up the travel. Palm trees and spectacular sunsets.

Perfect Beach, CA

 

Sun-kissed seas, sublime sunsets, tropical resorts and dolphins frolicking amongst the palms. It’s my kind of perfect.

Bahamas, July 2 1987

 

Despite Uncle Derek still quite hungover from the pina colada marathon he endured at the hotel yesterday, he managed to bring the video camera with him and we shot some amazing sunsets here at South Ocean Beach. It almost felt like an episode of Miami Vice.
