Not too long ago - about 14 days ago, we woke up at 6am and were out by 7am, hailing for a cab. It was a Sunday, and we'd decided to go down to the beach for the day. It was quite a journey! First the cab took us to the outskirts of the city, to Bonaberi to be exact, where we caught a bus that was heading to Limbe - our destination. Of course the bus did not reach the beach, so we took another cab at Mutengene which first took us to the Down Beach aka the Marina where we could find a fish market. While my parents picked out the fish to take back with us, I played the tourist. I must admit that I really like the Limbe and Buea (a nearby city) landscapes, and the ocean really does add a romantic touch to all of this.

After the fish market, we finally reached the beach! We chose to go to the Seme Beach Hotel by habit; since we've moved back to Cameroon back in 2000, this has been the place where our family gathered on weekends. It has changed a lot in the last decade, but the beach has remained the same. You may come to wonder why the sand is of this dark color... Well, Limbe is close to the Mount Cameroon and the sand is the result of the volcanic activity, as well as the Gas extraction that is going on in the region. Fear not! The last time the Mount Cameroon was in activity was back in 1999.

The day went by fast (as it usually does when you are enjoying yourself): we swam, ate grilled fish, relaxed before going back to Douala. I didn't realize how tired I was until we'd reached home! I went straight to bed (after taking a really good shower) and feeling exhausted but soooo great from all the fresh air and water exercise!
