We started the next day a bit earlier. We had hoped to beat the heat by leaving at 0830 but it was already hot when we started. We took dirt roads through a few villages and back into the fields on our way to the flats by Somone Lagoon. It was a little sandy in places but most of the tracks were smooth and we made good time.

Clicky!

They make an extended battery pack that more than doubles the run time.

Didn't know that. That would put it back in the running.

Go to GoPro's site and look at the accessories.

We got to the flats by the lagoon and it was a perfect place to practice some wheelies. I still suck, but I had a lot of fun.



Saw this guy on the way out. There are a lot of horse/donkey carts around Dakar. Most of them are for hire and do everything from trash removal to water deliveries.



And then we made our way to the beach. We missed a turn and when I tried to turn around in the sand I fell over. Larry was up ahead and didn't catch it so no pic. We decided to push through the sand and get down on the hard pack beach because I've never been able to just ride down a beach before..............

That looks just like the (ocean side) beach on Jupiter Island in FL!
