meet Penelope!

Have you met Penelope the peahen yet?

penny-1Penelope, or Penny as she is affectionately known, has made Udekki her home! One more animal to add to the menagerie that you’ll meet when you stay at Udekki.

Penny is a very regal and calm creature who loves being up high so she can view all that is going on! You’ll find her on top of an umbrella, or in a tree, or even on a table. At night, she chooses to sleep in the rafters of the terrace area of Glen’s place, flying down to join him as he heads to the pool with his morning coffee.

Penny also just loves being around the guests. And quietly following them wherever they go. Jens and Malu walked all the way down Alankuda Beach, and Penny followed one or two paces behind them. When they stopped at Bar Reef for a cold drink, she sat on the grass and calmly waited. Whilst they had a swim, she flew into a nearby tree and watched over the pool. When they were ready to walk back to Udekki, she flew down and joined them.ImageProxy.mvc

She even joined the boys for a game of basketball the other day! Keeping guard behind the 3 of them as they jumped and threw goals.

So next time you’re looking for a relaxing beachside holiday in Sri Lanka – come and visit us at Udekki – and you’ll never know what creatures may be around to greet you!
