4th May 08

Date: 4th May 08
Location: Cap Esterias, Gabon
Weather: Equatorially hot and humid, thundery and very pleasant. 36°c
Status: Relaxing by the beach to use up our two weeks on the Gabon visa

Once we awoke we realised our mistake from the night before with the navigation which had led us straight into somebody else’s back yard rather than to the site we were meant to find!

La Marina, our new location is stunning! A bit of a French expat hangout at the weekends but idyllic all the same with a good quality restaurant situated right on the beach with views out along the reef and down, down the coast towards the capital and also across the bay to mainland Equatorial Guinea.

We spent the day swimming in the sheltered bay, relaxing in the massively strong sunshine and feasting on dirt cheap fruits de la mer. Another shit day in Africa then!

Watched a couple of movies in Kee’s truck and then had a disturbed nights sleep as the thunder and lightning continued throughout the night.

End of day location: Cap Esterias, Gabon
Distance covered: 0kms
