Angle of repose

Braque meets beach – the perfect angle from which to imagine learning how to scuba dive (number one on my bucket list). So as I spend this soggy day thinking of sunny skill building, I escape to La Digue, a 10 square kilometer island in the Seychelles, the fourth largest in the 155-strong archipelago. When not underwater, I’ll be traveling by ox-cart as the Diguois do and have done for centuries, or birding (the black paradise flycatcher, one of the rarest birds on earth, calls La Digue home), or orchid hunting (step aside “Adaptation”). Or I may just beach myself on this angular stretch of Anse Source d’Argent, a fashionable whale in this J.Crew wetsuit.
