This is some of the wonderful decor on the walls of the beach resort Praia de Peixe, on the island of Macaneta, 40 km north of Maputo, Mozambique. I had breakfast there on Sunday with some new friends.
Sheila would have loved this display. She was a keen mosaic-er and was skilled at putting together displays like this, using driftwood, bits of old oar, shells and ceramics.
I was staying in Patricia’s beach house, made out of planks of hardwood. There was no mains electricity, but a generator provided some light in the evening for a few hours. Cold showers must be endured if you have to wash the Indian Ocean off your body.
It was fifteen minutes trek through the dunes and scrub forest to get to the beach. Miles and miles of beach. A few fishing boats, and lots of sand. BEACH.
