Preskil Beach, Mauritius

Last morning at the beach….finally figured out what the red and green flags on the sun shades are for (I thought they were just elaborate nautical decorations)…..

Apparently raising the green flag signals the bar staff that you would like service and raising the red flag means that you don’t want to be disturbed by anyone!

I only found this out on the last day when one of our kids was playing with the flags…..he raised the green flag then went off to swim in the pool…..the bar man was a little disappointed when I explained the accidental hoisting of the flag! But we did raise the green flag later on to have chips by the sea!
