Camels on the beach

Some sights are so cliché that you just have to see them.

IMG_8806Cable Beach is one of those beaches that seems almost too perfect: flat hard sand extending for miles, backed by large dunes and facing due west out into the warm Indian Ocean. By late afternoon most days, groups of people have driven vehicles onto the beach, and set up folding chairs to socialize as the sun sets.

But dramatic sunsets are not hard to find in this land of beaches: here most people are waiting to watch the nightly parade of camels taking riders along the shoreline.


Touristy? No doubt—but it sure is dramatic!
