Monday was the Malawi Independence Day and we celebrated by heading to Lake Malawi. It was beautiful and a bit breezy. The kids really enjoyed jumping in the waves and playing in the sand. Just like being at lake Michigan, only the view included mountains. We ate lunch at the beach as well and were able to watch monkeys play in the trees and look for leftovers around the tables. Monkeys are a lot cuter than sea gulls! Here are a couple of pictures to give you an idea of how beautiful the lake is.
