Curtis and I celebrated our first anniversary...we had a wonderful time! We started our anniversary (July 4) by going to the Independence Day Celebration at the US Marines House here in
We spent that night in
The first morning we were there we took a nice long walk around the whole area - there were many Baobab trees (Curtis' favorite)...these trees are huge, literally HUGE! These 2 pictures are each of us by a tree...and the picture can't do the tree justice, but you get the idea!
The next too are of the lake…first is another one taken on our walk. We decided that these boats were probably made from a branch from a Baobab tree. The big industry here, as with any lake, is fishing. The stuff in the boats are fishing nets. Later in the evening we saw someone on the lake in one of these boats - the boat is so small compared to a person that from the shore it looked like there was a man walking on the water! The second one was taken from our bungalow - that is how close we were to the water.
The picture of the two of us is special because we took one just like it on our honeymoon - that is the profile picture for the blog...I guess it has become a tradition! We had a wonderful time!
