Coastal Capers

My relief at reaching the coast and knowing there was no more sand for several hundred miles was immense and so I had a mini-holiday to celebrate and for some much needed rest, I could tell I'd lost weight as well over the past few weeks.
Down to the beach I headed

And a ride in a zebu cart with a difference

Yep, straight out to sea
Incredibly they use the carts to transport goods and people to and from the speedboats.

sometimes going quite deep

I stayed down the coast in a beachside hut

once more there were very few tourists around. I walked, snorkelled and swam a lot.
My favourite eating place was the Auberge Tintin, with a surreal fence made to look like crayons, where I would sit and drink cold beers until the mud wrestling became a distant memory
