Zanzibar Beachcombing

The highlight of Uroa had to be the beach. A stretch of honey-coloured sand as far as the eye could see, bubbling iridescent surf and some ominous grey clouds. School boys in navy shorts and white shirts ran bare-foot down the beach, seeking shelter beneath palm leaves when odd rogue rain showers struck. Women looked for seaweed and collected it in big woven baskets as they strode out to waist-high depths in full African dress. The soggy return journeys were made with the baskets firmly rooted on twists of fabric on plaited-hair heads.

When I was little, a day at the beach was never complete without a good session of beach-combing. Revising this favourite childhood past-time was unavoidable when presented with an empty beach and a bountiful collection of shells to be picked. The perfect throwback hobby to team with my shell-coloured (and new favourite) Made By Dawn bikini. Click here to buy is at Matches (but top tip…wait for the sale to get it at a price slightly easier to swallow!).
