Farmhouse by the Sea

Farmhouse, 2009

The islands of the Seychelles are renowned for their picture-perfect, pristine white-sand beaches. My husband and I decided to go for a walk along the coastline of Praslin, the second largest island. At some point, the beach became slightly less clean and ‘polished’. That is when we found this beautiful old farmhouse. The trees and shrubs behind it, the location by the sea and the tattered roof all added to its charm. This was also the point where we couldn’t walk any further, so we had to turn back. It certainly was worth the walk though!
