Clinging…

kilindi1
Yes, i’m clinging to summer. I know we’re all being inundated with images of fall, and, while i love the fashion and the changing of leaves that fall brings, Alas, i’m not ready to say goodbye to summer! *Sob, sob.* Therefore, i’m inviting you all to Zanzibar(Tanzania) to join me in a languorous retreat at the curvaceous Kilindi.  Kilindi is a  15 domed pavilion which overlooks Tumbatu Island in the north, scattered across 54 acres and bordered by Casuarina forest. It is quite secluded and to get there, ‘guests are driven along back roads so they think there’s nothing else around,’ jokes owner Bobby McKenna.  Ok all, let’s all head off to Kilindi for one last hoorah!

  8. Take me with you! :) I don't want to leave summer yet...this is truly amazing. I had a friend who moved to Zanzibar for 2 years and was traumatized when she had to leave - well, no wonder! I adore all these images, esp. the outdoor shower :)
