framed original sailing dhow oil painting, 635 x 635 mm, by award-winning Kenyan artist Karen Laurence-Rowe
Early morning on Watamu beach is a special time for me. When the tide is right and the breeze is soft , that first light mirrored on the calm sea stills my soul. l love to watch the fishermen push off for the horizons hoping for just enough fish to feed their families and some left over to sell at the market. In spite of the beauty they see every day – it must be a hard life. I respect them for that.
