Departing Tema...

It was still early in the morning this past Thursday when the Africa Mercy headed out of the Port of Tema bound for Lome, Togo. Ghana has been good to us and being here has afforded many crew members the opportunity to explore the country. While I didn't spend a night off the ship, I was still able to relax in some pretty awesome surroundings. Thank you Ghana!

Sun rises over the Port of Tema as a tug stands-by.

Pilot boat waits in the harbour.

Mooring lines are cast off.

Heading out towards the sea.

Clearing the main breakwater.

Pilot departs.

And heads back to the shelter of the harbour.

Little fishing canoes approaching.

Rice-sack sails - very innovative here in West Africa!
