Weekend on Island Camp, Lake Baringo Continued

We'd arranged with management to go on a sunset cruise on the lake, ending with coctails on the Gibralta Rock behind the island. However, when we met the guide at the jetty at 5, he said a big storm was brewing and we'd have a windy and uncomfortable ride. There'd also be no sunset photos from the Rock, because of the grey, overcast sky. We postponed the trip to next morning at 7.
Thick grey clouds and ominous-looking choppy water: not conducive to an enjoyable sunset cruise!

Sunday morning dawned crisp and clear with the most glorious sunrise viewed from our tent.

Coffee and ginger biscuits were served on the wooden deck of our tent overlooking the lake

We had visitors joining us for coffee

Incredibly beautiful

At 7, we boarded the boat for our trip around the lake
