Sometimes you just need a little bit of peace and quiet. We took advantage of a recent local holiday to hit the beach and the pool. I’ve written about the Sofitel resort at Sipopo before, and it’s weirdly post-Colonial feel. That hasn’t changed at all.
The kids and I had a great time playing on the beach.
I finally got a chance to explore the small island off the coast, affectionately called “Mosquito Island.”
And we finished the day by meeting some friends at the pool. One of them was kind enough to watch the kids for a few minutes while I dug into a book. Then I taught the bartender how to make a Martini.
