This morning we spend a relaxing time by the beach and take a swim in the ocean.  It is great - the water is warm and the waves are just big enough to be interesting, but not too big to make it dangerous.  We have a lot of fun playing around.  After a quick breakfast, we this opportunity to give the truck and all its contents a good cleaning.  There is quite a lot to clean up and out and it is good to see Christie clean once again.

After finishing the clean up, we go back into the ocean for another swim, after which we take a shower to wash off all the salt.  Following a quick lunch at the resort, we pack up the truck and at 2:30 PM drive to Accra, capital of Ghana.


We get to Accra at 6:30 PM and check into our hotel - the GHASOM hotel.  It is a nice hotel, except that it is a bit noisy.  They have a mosque right next door, along with a couple of "discos".  The night clubs go on until 2 AM and the mosque has it's first prayers of the day at 5 AM.  At least the place is clean and has nice firm beds.

After a quick shower, we all head out for our group dinner as this is the end of the first segment of the trip.  A number of people will be leaving (and joining) us here.  We have dinner at a Chinese restaurant.  And it is quite good.  Many of the courses are prepared in the same way with the same sauces - but we have to remember that we are not in Asia. We stuff ourselves and have a great time.  After dinner, we head back to the hotel.
