Images from the Beach

June 10
Green Turtle Lodge
Near Dixcove

There was a storm at the beach but that didn't matter. There is something about the ocean that is without despair.

We went to find our way back to where it was our heads used to be. We went looking for solace and we found it.

I never used to think of the beach when I though of Africa, but now I always will. The people who built this place have a very good thing going.

There are turtles nesting nearby, somewhere, but we did not find them. We didn't even look. Why would we?

Two nights at the Green Turtle Lodge weren't nearly enough. We may go back, before we leave in the fall.

There were local people about who live there. I wonder if they know they live in paradise.
