Cape Coast, Ghana

Our visit to Cape Coast was short but fruitful non the less. One of our first stops was the old Fort or "castle" where from slaved were held and sent across the ocean. I was really impressed by the guided tour and it added a lot to the visit. There was a pretty lame 20 cedi fee to take photos, but between the blue skies and water I decided to just fork over the money- and in the end I was glad I did. 

Right next to the old fort is where the fishermen set out from. Luckily the stink of fish doesn't waft around Cape Coast too much- yay sea breezes! 

We also to a walk to the top of Fort William lighthouse which made for some pretty spectacular views.
