This is a typical sunset at Cap Lopez which is just down the coast from the Port Gentil Harbour. The sun drops into the clouds and casts a brilliant red everywhere. Bodysurfing the waves here is a lot of fun, but you have to be careful for the deceiving undertow which carries people around the corner to the ocean every year. This is the beach where I dipped my toes in ocean water for the very first time 🙂
This is one of the logs that are the second largest industry in Gabon, washed up on the shore of Voodoo Isle. A lovely little island which is rented by some new friends of mine. They had me over for a day of swimming, cookout, and sunshine with their friends and children. This little island is next to the mouth of a delta river and the current completely changes direction with the tide. I was very surprised by how warm the ocean water is!
