Walking through the mangrove swamp

There are two ways that we can go to the garden when we’re in the village. The shorter way involves walking through the mangrove swamp, and it can only be done at low tide as we walk through the river, which rises with the tide.

Here’s me walking through the river between the mangrove trees on our way to the garden:

After a while we leave the river and walk over the mangrove roots, which can be a bit of a challenge when you’re a rebel like me and don’t wear your shoes!

Here we are walking through the water again on our way back to the village. This particular day, I had cut my leg with a bush knife/machete, so I was trying to make sure that I kept the cut above the water!
