The Beginning of Our 10- Day Journey Down The Coast to Kumasi: Day One !

At this point in time in Ghana we left the Accra area to embark on a ten day trip down the coast to end in Kumasi. The pictures below were taken of our first stop in a place called BEYIN and pictures from the bus window along the way.

This was our first hotel at our first stop.

Coconuts ! 

The beach our hotel was on 



The water looked like cocoa or chocolate because it had stormed

PALM TREES! 

More Chocolate Cocoa Water 






Some type of plant I noticed on the sand that caught my eye because of the colors 








Sitting area in the middle of the hotel and beach
There was a random sign far away .....

I decided to zoom because I was curious to know what it said  

OOPS...No pictures! I thought this was ironic.

So usually when you travel on a trip in America the bus food
is a paperback lunch consisting of a sandwich and a piece of fruit.
Well this is a bag lunch Ghana style consisting of fish, chicken, rice,
noodles, and veggies! There was also un-pictured fruit!
 I loved it!
This is a pic of the infamous mud/dirt roads that we traveled and
walked upon. Though this looks smooth, they got very bumpy
and muddy!
