Tidbit Tuesday: On Location...


I recently brought my heroine to Mauritius in the current WIP. To one area in particular - coastal village and Northern Cote d'Azur of the island, Grand Baie.
It is in Grand Baie that the hotel she stays at is located, and it is in a swanky little shopping village called Sunset Boulevard that she meets the hero. Incidentally, it is in the same complex that the hero lives. This area is located right at the heart of the village, on the beach, and right upon one of the main entrances from the motorway.

In toiling about what to talk about today, I thought I'd take you on location to the 'set' of the story. :)
I could tell you a lot of things about the place, but images speak louder than words in this case.

Check out the pics - they should give a pretty good idea of how gorgeous this part of Mauritius looks like!

See what my characters are seeing right now! Pretty, innit?

From Mauritius with love,
