Coco de Mer

Praslin SEYCHELLES

I asked a desk clerk on my ship whether I should go ashore in Praslin. Crystal staff epitomize reserve and gentility and the female Asian desk clerk was perhaps even more reserved than most. She was having difficulty describing the unique nature of the coconuts found on Praslin and finally blurted out "Mr. Rigney, they look like a woman's bottom!" Point noted !

The object in the photo is actually a coconut. Would you like to put a "lime" in it? (Brother bought a coconut, he bought it for a dime. His sister had another one she paid it for a lime. She put the lime in the coconut, she drank 'em both up)

From Wikipedia: Lodoicea, commonly known as the sea coconut, coco de mer, or double coconut, is a monotypic genus in the palm family. The sole species, Lodoicea maldivica, is endemic to the islands of Praslin and Curieuse in the Seychelles.

Beautiful hindsight

Praslin Seychelles
I hired a driver to take me around the island as as he put his car in reverse to get out of the parking lot, his rear camera caught this shot. It doesn't look as spectacular in this view but in real life it looked like a vacation poster...
