I wanted to share some more pictures taken on a trip to the beach. This was and still is my only trip to the beach while I've been living in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire. As you can see it was a cloudy day, which has become the norm over here since it's currently the rainy season. The good thing is that the whole day it was just cloudy, but no rain! My boss was kind enough to take me to one of their beaches called Grande-Bassam. I had taste of pure coconut water and enjoyed a late lunch of fresh fish and rice. One of the interesting things about this trip was how warm the water was. I'm more used to the Atlantic being freezing cold, growing up in Massachusetts, so feeling the warm water was pretty nice. I didn't even mind when a giant wave soaked half my clothes. I hope I get to visit more beaches during my last three months over here.
