We've been very busy playing tourist since arriving here in Grand Baie. We are now temporary members of GBYC. The club reminds me of RFBYC in Perth with its raised aspect, nice lawns and yachts moored all around. The hot showers are marvellous!

The "chateau" is less castle and more plantation mansion. This building was renovated about 10 years ago and is well worth a visit. Their orchard garden is also very good, with examples of a wide range of trees, including nutmeg, cloves, mangoes, "rain tree" and more.

After the walk we had lunch at the Bois Cheri tea plantation. Their restaurant was excellent and the plantation scenic.
