This week we have enjoyed spending another week in the resort of Sally in Senagal. We were closer to the centre this time so we had much better access to the shops. The apartment had the use of two pools one of which was right next to us and then another situated next to the resort restaurant, however on the Monday they started retiling and grouting the restaurant pool hence it was closed for the rest of our holiday. The week was spent relaxing by the pool or taking walks along the beach. On one such walk we spotted a Pelican and we were then suppressed when another lady started calling him by his name Daniel. We watched as he came waddling over to her to take a fish from her hand he even begged for it and wagged his tail which amused us all. That was it the children ran off to get more fish as we had noticed loads of tiny sprats which were getting washed up by the tide. I started walking off to help and happened to glance to my side and got such a shock as Daniel was happily waddling along by my side as if I was taking him for a walk. We then spent some time feeding Daniel by throwing the sprats into the air for him to catch. The next day we went looking for Daniel again armed with a tub full of sprats, at first there was no sign of him however a Senegalese lad took us further inland to the house where he lives and then called his name. He swam across the stream to get his fill of the fish which we had collected. Abigail and I even got to stroke his feathers which were very thick and soft. On one of our walks we walked to the resort near the Marina where we had stayed at Christmas, we got such a shock as the villas close to the beach plus the Marina Restaurants had been burnt down to the ground. Apparently it happened four months ago when some one had lit a firework which landed on one of the grass roofs and just spread from villa to villa, there was even a shell of a badly burnt out boat in the Marina.
