Beach Life!

We have had an amazing 2 weeks relaxing on the island of Boa Vista.

Boa Vista is one of 10 islands that make up Cape Verde. It is located 570 km off the coast of Senegal, West Africa. It is an amazing island which has not really been touched by tourism. Although Cape Verde is now an independant country, it previously belonged to Portugal. The 'official' language is Portugese, but everyone speaks Creole. Everyone is so friendly and the common phrase 'no stress' was heard a lot during our 2 weeks!!

There is so much to share from our break, so I thought I'd kick of with a little beach time!!

The boys had a fabulous time building castles and digging holes in the sand.

The empty beaches go on for miles and miles of fine white sand and the deep blue ocean is refreshing, how be it very strong. No swimming here, but lots of wave jumping!!

Tim spent hours jumping in the waves and digging his feet into the sand as the water tried to pull him back as the tide returned to the ocean.

Although Tae loves water he was very unsure of the sea and ther waves. He would go to the edge and run away as the tide came in. Therefore during our time on the beach Tae spent most of his time people watching and digging in the sand.

Baywatch watch out!!!
