Journal Entry:
Slept in until 9:30 - yea! After breakfast started off for a walk down the beach - heading south down the west coast this time. Made it just past Kwenda when it started to rain. We took cover in a hotel restaurant and when it stopped raining started walking again. It immediately started raining again - and this time hard. The sky looked like it wasn't going to stop soon and the tide was starting to rise so we headed back to Nungwi. By the time we got back we were soaking wet. Took cover in our restaurant and had a late lunch and read. About three the sun finally broke through. We walked next door and arranged for a ride back into Stone Town tomorrow. Then hung out on the beach for one last time. In the evening played cards and watched the sun set from our deck. Anticipating internet access in Stone Town tomorrow I stayed up late getting caught up on email.
