Cap Skirring, December 16, 2018

The beach is beautiful.  The sand is whitish and powdery like icing sugar-

Cows enjoy the beach too-

I walked to the main road and hitched a ride to town.  It's an easy enough walk but it only costs 35 cents in a cab.  It gives me a chance to visit with the locals and find suggestions for good restaurants.  I found one and enjoyed calamari with garlic and peppers.  Properly cooked calamari is not rubbery like the way we often get it at home.  It's dense, soft and delicious, and not mushy-

After, I tried to get into Club Med to use their pool but was denied entry so I walked around and came up from the beach.  I had a swim and look around and then walked back towards my hotel.  I settled on this view for the afternoon-

With a breeze and shade it was a great way to spend the afternoon.  Walking home, there was a huge soccer game on the beach.  They were very good-

We are off to Ziguinchor in the morning and if all goes well at the Guinée Bissau embassy, we'll cross the border.

P.S.  Andi doesn't look like she's having much fun!
