The beach
Other than that our stay in Barra was extremely pleasant. After two days at our mediocre accommodation, we realized that down the street there were little houses on the beach to be had. Since they were all standing empty –it being the low season- we were able to rent one for only marginally more money than our little room had been. Now we were cooking! We had a full kitchen and a bbq grill. We bought freshly caught fish on the beach and invited our old neighbors, very nice people from Pretoria, South Africa, for dinner. We had a great evening!
It was the time of the spring tides, and on two or three evenings the water rose so high that the road leading to our little house looked more like a lake. When we returned from town, I had to hike up my pants and wade ahead of the car to describe a route it could follow. The water was thigh high in some spots! Again, we were amazed at our trusty Golf. When the hotel manager saw it standing there all covered in mud the next day, he sent somebody to clean it. It sparkled like new afterwards!
Since we were trying to decide where to go next, we called Des back in Richards Bay to ask, when we might leave for Dar-Es-Salam. That’s when we received the sad news that the buyer of the boat had changed his mind, and the delivery would not happen any time soon if at all. We were very disappointed.
