Chapati by the beach

The kids were delighted that we would be having dinner by the beach.
The tide usually comes in early in the evenings but during the Hari Raya Haji weekend it was low tide at 6pm.

Swathy joined us for the weekend. Waggy the neighbourhood dog tagged along too.

Khushpal prepares the atta flour while Gobind arranges the firewood.
The rest of us wait around anxiously, trying to be helpful.
Gobind says that back home in India his wife only uses wood fire to cook her chapati as she finds the smell from the gas stove offensive.

mouth-watering chapati Hot! Hot!
It was a beatiful night.
Clear skies.
Bright twinkling stars. Which reminds me - I need to get a book on astronomy.
The sea was calm and Kent and the kids went in a few times to check on the nets. Not much fish though.
