|"Hurry up with your shoes!" -Carrie
|From this view near the entrance gate, our house is on the left, the palapa straight ahead, the pool beyond.
|We carry the little guys out of our gate.
|And walk a short distance along this busy road, just to the corner.
|From here, it is a calm, unpopulated stroll to the beach!
|About 5 minutes and we'll be there!
|Except we keep stopping for pictures today!
|A lot of pretty flowers dot our path!
|"Mom got ahead again!!" -Carrie
|We pass this field, people use this to walk instead of the busy road
|We turn and walk a short distance towards the ocean
|The only eyesore: a river meets the ocean here and trash collects
|We are able to hop on rocks to avoid it
|And then the water!
|Dar es Salaam is such a crazy, busy, dusty, developing-world city. It is shocking to discover a true tropical paradise merely yards away!
|Jackie LOVES the beach!
|Finally, a greyhound who swims!
|And tries to shake off a bit too early....
|Cooled off, now to romp!!
|I think Africa suits him.
|Abigail running with the girls.
|Robert is the only one who doesn't get to go off leash.
|We do "encourage" him to swim though...
|They were running so fast, most of my pictures are out of focus, even with the high speed camera!
|Back at home now, under the palapa. Getting ready to de-sand...
|Um, yeah, you're going to have to get clean AGAIN.
|This one is NOT in love with the water!
|He will take any salvation!
|Shade! And dirt!
|Karl playing! It was a great day!
