South Beach, Dar es Salaam: August 15, 2010

Desperate to leave the city and our mosquito-infested apartment in Upanga, Aimee and I fled to the white-sand beaches on Sunday morning just south of Dar. We quickly boarded the ferry across the mouth of the harbor in our car, and then drove to Kipepeo, one of the many beach resorts located along this stretch of the coast. For most of the morning, we swam in the Indian Ocean and relaxed in the shade, noting a few birds of prey hawking above the coastal scrub but failing to identify them. When the tide went out in the afternoon, we walked south along the beach to a small patch of mangroves, where a few Grey Herons, Dimorphic Egrets, and Greater Flamingos were present.
