Canoe on Ginak Island
Another photograph from The Gambia - I am reminiscing! This was taken shortly after we arrived on Ginak Island. What a serenely beautiful place it was. No gimmicks, no tourists (well, apart from us!), just mangroves, friendly, chilled out people and an abundance of cannabis plants! Ginak is renowned locally for its vast crop of marijuana. Interestingly, the island is said to be haunted by evil spirits and so the police refuse to cross the river to make arrests & seize the crops! Genius!
