And the visiting Chinese tourists at La Campagne Tropicana Beach Resort, this morning, took up the fishing expedition challenge, and it was fun like never!

Oh they had great fun, swimming inside the ocean, even coordinating the hauling out of the huge net from water, right inside the Atlantic ocean itself!

They watched and enjoyed the various native African songs, sang by the local community people, while pulling the fat net ropes out of the ocean.

It was tedious and lasted for a while. But for the visiting Chinese guests at La Campagne Tropicana Beach Resort, it was huge fun as they dived, pulled, laughed, chatted, while looking forward to the fishes that was a great expectation from the fishing expedition.

And when the giant sized net was finally hauled to the shore, luck smiled on the efforts of the fishermen and the combined efforts of the host community and the supporting Chinese tourists. The fishes caught by the net, were the big ones. There were also few sea foods which the Chinese tourists said, were their major target.

The fishermen sorted out the seafoods, huge crabs and others, for the Chinese Tourists with a few big fishes, which the Chinese gladly purchased, before the main distribution of the other fishes, haggling and sales took place.

At the end of it all, everyone was happy on a mission completed and accomplished.

The Chinese visitors later sat at the beach front to their picnic, while reminiscing on their fishing feat and expedition. They have found new friends, new activity and gained great memories, through camera photos and videos.

Like it is usually said about La Campagne Tropicana Beach Resort, the fun is endless, never a boring moment here.
