The coast: Diani Beach

After returning from the safari we: Grant, Claire, Heather and Louise, turned around the very next morning and flew to Mombasa to spend a week at Diani Beach on the Indian Ocean. This is the rainy season so prices were low and we were able to find some great deals. The first 4 nights we stayed at a self catering cottage right on the beach. We were able to buy fresh fish and shrimp from the fishermen and make wonderful dinners with them in the evening. On the 5th day one of the volunteers, Heather, traveled up to a remote Island called Lamu, so Claire, myself and Louise upgraded and spent the final days at an "All Inclusive Resort." We have very much been spoiled the last 4 days with great food, a swimming pool, amazing beach, crazy warm ocean water, snorckling, and directed activitities, like water polo and water aerobics! Oh, and did I mention that all the beer, spirits, and wine that we could want was also included in the price? Needless to say that Claire and I have returned to Nairobi more relaxed, tan, and full.

Diani Beach--10 km of white sand!

We all rode camels on the beach!! RANDOM!
