Only more small encounter with a Baboon but it was a female in the kitchen and she fled quickly, reminded me of…never mind. We are now basically living on the beach with our own private kite spot. There is a kiting place about 1km down wind if we want to play with others on the water. Usually we end up there for a beer at happy hour and swap kite stories with fellow kiters mostly from Europe.
The conditions here don't seem to change much, slightly cloudy until 11ish then comes the sun and the wind. Average day is between 17 and 20 knots, I have been on the 10 and ace on the 8 usually fully juiced. Water is pretty flat especially in low tide, there is a reef approx 1.5km off shore. Waves on the reef can get up to 2.5 to 3 m. Must say its a little scary riding these waves and seeing coral only 2 feet below the surface, because the water is so clear it feels like you are right on it - scary but beautiful in the same time.
About 2km upwind on the beach is a small sand island that appears in low tide making some amazing flat water touring.
Food here has been wonderful fresh fruits and veg just up the street and the local fisherman walks the grounds with his catch every morning, really good red snapper, we are going to try the lobster later in the week. We have a local cook, Hassani, coming to our place today for 5 dollars he prepares a traditional Kenyan meal in your kitchen, still not sure what that is but hope it isn't monkey or camel. Don't think we play the beef game here looks a little scetch and is hard to find. Chicken is all right here - might sound a little gross but yesterday we scored a bird so fresh it was still a little warm.
Headed off up the beach to get snorkelling equipment that we have rented for10 bucks for the week looking forward to discovering the reef.
Think that all for now hope everyone is enjoying the snow and staying warm we chat soon
