Christmas in Paradise

January 1, 2014

Well, almost; a week at the Ngala Lodge in Gambia.


With weather typical of a fine summer’s day in the UK, terrific food and hospitality, what’s not to like? And only just over 5 hours from Gatwick to Banjul.

The pool was unheated but still just warm enough to swim in, as was the sea. Falling asleep to the sound of chirping insects and rolling surf is hard to beat.

Christmas Eve was our Ruby wedding anniversary and also the main celebration at the hotel, with a 7 course evening meal. Add a fair amount of alcohol and a good time was had by all into the small hours. There was good entertainment every night, too.

Tabou n friends

Christmas day itself was much more low key; back to sunbathing, reading and sudokus.

I could have taken many more pictures but there are now quite a few on Flickr, as always.

Kerry seemed to have been well cared for in kennels so now we’re ready to face the UK’s awful winter refreshed.
