The Beach...
I loved spending time at the beach, it was my favorite place to relax and spend time with my host family.
The city of Keta has been slowly disappearing into the ocean for several years. The large rocks were placed on the shore to mitigate further coastal erosion.
A small glimpse of the coastline.
