Default Beach

During the month of August, we spent the month exploring the beaches on the coast in Kenya, north east of Mombasa. A friend in the UK, very kindly loaned us the use of his beach house for as long as we wanted.

Kuruwitu Beach is a marine conservancy where we spent many hours exploring the reef and swimming in its warm waters. Here are a couple of photos of the beach. A protected reef and conservancy for the past 12 years. No plastics seen on the reef bed.

Morning Jeff, thank you very much, how kind. We are staying in a hotel with a self catering apartment in the Ballymun area of Dublin. Itís quite a change from Kuruwitu Beach in the photo. Ballymun has undergone a regeneration, formerly notorious for drugs, crime and its tower block slums which were demolished. The hotel in Ballymun is about 10 minutes from the airport and 20 minutes drive from the centre of the city.

The apartment is comfy, exceptionally clean with A/C - heating, double glazing, a giant Flatscreen TV in the bedroom with excellent Freeview But for what it is, itís expensive in comparison to London. Moving on.........I deliberately left my camera behind in Kenya with a view to upgrading it once we are in England. We found the weather in Ireland a shock, but everyday we have been going out exploring, riding on the trains and buses.

Social distancing and wearing of face masks in restaurants and shops is mandatory, this includes buses and trains. Yesterday we took a train to Howth on the coast and had Fish n Chips. To eat inside, the staff wanted to see our EU digitised vaccination certificates. We had paper ones with us from Kenya but decided to eat outside. The fish was a lovely piece of COD and the chips were thick cut and tasted great. One portion was enough for two at Ä12 or £10.23 so I wondered if that was the going rate for Fisn n Chips

I wonder what today will bring?
