Glimpses of the Fisher-Folk

From the central hills in Sri Lanka, we headed down to one of the coastal areas. We caught a glimpse of some fishermen at work as we travelled from Bentota to Galle.

The final image is of a boat drawn up on the shore at Bentota Beach.

I was a little disappointed not to have visited an area where stilt fishermen work – that will have to wait for another time 🙂
