Happy new year to you all from Watamu.

We had a busy time over the Christmas and New Year period. On the 30th December there was the annual dhow race from Ocean Sports organised by the Watamu Marine Association, it was an exciting race won by the dhow called Samael and a sum of 30 thousand Kenyan shilling was shared between the 6 dhows in the race.

We had had good friends from England and Italy over Xmas and New Year which was nice to meet old friends again and we had a good time.

I arranged friends from England on the 2nd Jan to visit the Masai Mara to the Governors Camp which they enjoyed very much taking lots of photos with my camera to post on here.




Watamu has been very peaceful over the Xmas period but we could do with more tourists please to come and visit our beautiful country beaches and the friendly people ofWatamu.

We also had tourists arriving on the 7th Jan at TBBC and I arranged for them to go to the Royle Mara also having a good safari time in the Masai Mara.
