a weekend to unwind
We finished off our travels with Cam by spending the long Presidents Day weekend on the coast. Cam had wanted to go scuba diving, lugging his newly acquired equipment halfway around the world with him. We were happy to oblige as it gave us an opportunity to indulge ourselves. We rented a gorgeous beach house, complete with cook and staff, with five of our friends and spent the weekend in complete relaxation. There was talk off going to a nearby animal reserve, but the farthest we ventured from the house and its pool was to the small infinity pool that overlooked the ocean. Tourism at Kenya’s northern beach resorts may have taken a hit as a result of last year’s high-profile kidnappings, but the south coast, including Tiwi Beach where we stayed, remains a tranquil and beautiful slice of heaven unaffected by the instability along the Somalia border.
