Beach Time in Zanzibar

After a night in Stone Town we headed to Pwani Mchangani, the northeast part of the island.The beach was beautiful. There was a reef in the distance which kept the waves away and also caused the water to be a bit warm.

When the tide went out women would collect seaweed and tie it together in a line. Then they would set the seaweed out to dry. The seaweed is sold and used to make shampoo and other body products.

When the tide goes out all the boats rest lazily on the shore.

Hermit crabs. I have never seen these outside of a pet store.

Lil and Sydney relaxing on the beach.

The Zanzibar group.

Some locals.

Playing bananas, also known as speed scrabble.

Look at that concentration.
