One final trip to Roume...

Our good friends Phil and Ali, along with their three-month-old baby Zoe, invited us to join them on an outing to Roume Island last weekend. (17th November 2012.) It was their first time visiting the island and our third time, and it was certainly worth it. We played frisbee, swam, relaxed on the beach, and enjoyed a delicious lunch. And what meal in West Africa isn't complete without ice-cold Coca-Cola out of glass bottles - much better than cans! It was a great day spent with some pretty amazing people.

 Hmmm, fresh bread!
 Delicious chicken!
 Amazing calamari!
