ECP stargazing session!

Fun, talk and laughter made the ECP stargazing (18th July) especially memorable, even though the night skies didn’t turn out the way we wished it would be. However the beautiful sunrise took our breath away, yes, it was absolutely stunning!

 

Here’s a glimpse of the sun peaking through the horizon…

 

 

We had the normal dose of beach activities such as cycling…

Chatting and relaxing…

 

People watch…

Camwhoring 😀

 The “not very clear” night skies!

In short, we had a blast even though we were a tad disappointed with the night skies!
