Paindane Beach, Mozambique


We took Nat and Jeremiah on a very brief 2 day break last weekend to one of Mozambique’s beautiful beaches, Paindane. Accommodations are a bit rustic but the beauty of the turquoise water and quiet beaches certainly made it all worthwhile. While the guys snorkeled I gathered shells. See…

Barbequing at suppertime.

The moon over the ocean at 2 a.m. (a bit of insomnia).

The morning sky at around 5 a.m. just before sunrise (no insomnia here, I just couldn’t resist getting up for this shot).

Pineapples for sale along the highway. We bought some and placed them in the back of our bakkie (pick-up), but after a very bouncy 20-something kilometer sand track ride to Paindane in + 30-something degrees, they were pretty much reduced to pineapple juice! We did manage to eat a portion of one of the 3 we bought.

So how was that for a mini-tropical-holiday? Probably much like it was for us, beautiful but brief! TTYL

Aww! I have to hurry up and get back there!
Oh, and the politics thing: I'll discuss them anytime, with anyone. People who can't do that just aren't secure in their friendships :)
