Beautiful morning on Orient. Sunrise shortly after 6. Not many people out early but mosquitos , or the like, are out early. There was a post recently about a cream or spray that was recommended and was successful. Did a search but did not find it. Anyone remember? Village was lively last night with restaurants busy and vendors set up in the middle. Yellow Submarine had a band. Beautiful eve.

We use Skinsations by Cutter. Has just enough Deet to keep them away and very little scent.

I was told the distributor passed away or something like that. Not sure why someone else couldn't take the distributorship over, but it's been over a year, perhaps two, that MM has been unavailable.

No affiliation, but it looks like this company has it available and ships worldwide. Might be worth a shot.

Nor did we see them, but feel them. Likely they got us on our balcony and at lunch as you get away from the ocean breeze. Found a friend with a solution. Thanks for all the responses. Sir Richard I sent you a response ,last eve to your picture, of the Orient sunrise. If yours was from yesterday morning we were certainly there at the same time facing the same direction. Not sure what happened to that post. Will start a new thread sometime soon with a brief trip report of our stay.

Another beautiful day on Orient today with a bit more wind. God is good.

We use Skinsation and layered with Avon's Skin so Soft. I tried various bug-away cocktails the first couple of days and by far the Skinsation and Skin so Soft warded off the most bites.

Fortunately, we saw no mosquitoes this visit. Happy, because they always seem to attack me.
