Those Beach Pictures I Promised

If you frequent my blog, you know that I absolutely love the beach.  The beaches here, can be very beautiful…depending on tides and storms.  High tide and heavy rain usually result in a flow of “stuff”, both natural and unnatural, washed up on the beach.  This time we were fortunate to have neither.

This beach is close, just outside the city, north of Libreville.  If I could count on a consistent low tide, it’s probably closer to walk along the shore rather than drive.

The water is always warm and the sand is smooth.  It’s not Caribbean blue, but the sand is clean and free of rocks all the way out.

Gabon is one of the greenest countries on the planet.  You have to love the palm trees and thick brush so close to shore.
As a country that relies on exporting all of its resources, logs on the beach is a natural occurrence (excuse the pun).
This building is a radar repeater for the airport.  Obviously Gabon has the most progressive technology.
