I’ve already shared a bunch of stories and pictures from our family travel to Ghana, but I still have so much to share! I’m kinda getting burned out from writing, but I have a goal to plow through, and have it all documented, so hang tight!  My mom took us on an excursion from Accra to the Cape Coast. I already wrote about the touring we did to the Cape Coast (slave) Castle, and the canopy walk at Kakum National Park.  Today, I’m sharing about our stay at the Coconut Grove Resort near the Cape Coast.

Sadly, my dad was not able to travel down with us to the Cape Coast as originally planned, because he was tending to a missionary in the hospital. My mom took us to Coconut Grove, a spot they had been to once before with other missionary couples like themselves. It felt odd, traveling through poverty stricken villages in Ghana, to get to the luxury resort, but we enjoyed our stay there, nonetheless.

We planned to stay in the more economical little huts that were separated from the resort a bit, but with a room mix up, we ended up staying closer to the beach and amenities, so that was nice. We barely got to the beach in time to see it with the light, we got a good 30 minutes of play time in. The sand was course, and so different than what we knew back home in Texas, and though we didn’t fully immerse in our swimsuits, we had fun wading and splashing. The beaches were gorgeously tended to, unlike other parts we’d seen along the Ghanaian coast.

It was amazing watching this local grab the coconut from the tree, and chop it up for me to drink.
