Fishing Village

IMG_2749The village of Kigombe just down the beach at Peponi is reputed to be the oldest in Tanzania. Regardless of that claim there certainly was a large fillet of ships in the bay and each evening just before sunset  a number of villagers  would make their way down to the beach. Laden end with buckets and other containers carrying lamps or ropes they would wade out into the shallow waters heading for their boats.

They would then spent the night on the waters of the Indian Ocean their lamp lit boats strung like pearls across the horizon. IMG_2306

The following morning they return fish ready to sell or take home for food.

 

Ten years ago I visited a different Fishing Village on the other side of Africa in The Gambia
