Josh and I bodyboarding in the surf on the first day
We have been away from computers and all things work related for a while. We just returned from a lovely time at the Kenya south coast. We stayed at a wonderful two
Jinchini Beach House on Kenya South Coast
storey thatched house in a coastal Arab style with delightful staff on a great bit of beach and spent most of our days in water or walking the sands or just resting and enjoying each others’ company. There was seafood galore and we had our fill of prawns and fish and lobster and calamari and coconut rice and fresh tropical fruit, all for the price of eating at McDonald’s. The waves were big and we did a lot of body-boarding until the waves got so big
Cher’s Birthday Celebration Surrounded by Family
they were dumping us right on the sand and we broke three boards in quick succession, one into Cher’s middle, making a big bruise and cracking some ribs. That was not so nice
Grandkids and I playing in the pool
but she was a great sport about everything and we celebrated her big birthday in great style. When we weren’t in the sea we were in the pool with the grandkids playing pirate games or out collecting the beautiful red seeds that look like heart shaped Redhots from one of the many nice trees that decorate the property.
Oh, on the way down to the coast we broke up the trip by staying at Tsavo National Park for one night. It is always wonderful to be around elephants and the wildlife of Africa surrounded by such amazing scenery. The warden there is a very nice man and has been very good to us. I once fixed the alternator on his plane and he flew Josh and me around the park afterwards showing us things most people never get to see. The lions did not eat us and that is always good.
Lovely Tsavo Elephants
