A Perfect Get-Away

9.06.2010

Have you ever had one of those weekends where everything just felt perfect? Of all the weekends we've had here, I'd have to say this one came the closest to perfection.
We had planned on spending the long weekend just relaxing at home, but a friend talked us into heading to a beach resort about an hour away. I am SO thankful that we went because it was absolutely amazing!

When we arrived we couldn't wait to check out our rooms.  They definitely did not disappoint!
The cool thing about this place is that everything is handmade, from the furniture to the thatched roofs.
We all joked that this is the fanciest bathroom we've seen in Africa.
The view from our room was beautiful. I probably took at least 50 pictures from the balcony, but I won't bore you with all of them. :)
After checking everything out, we headed down to the beach to get the fun started. We spent the day lounging in the sand, playing volleyball, swimming, and eating lots of delicious food.
I'd have to say it's impossible to be unhappy when this is what you are surrounded by. It's also pretty easy to forget that you are in the middle of Africa...
Just when we thought the day couldn't get any better:
Dinner!
On the beach!!
Next to a bonfire!!!
 

If this isn't the good life, I don't know what is. Seriously though, it was just what we needed to feel refreshed and ready for a new week.
Anyone up for a visit?
