Elmina and Cape Coast are famous for their castles and fishing ports. The castles are monuments to human suffering, from where African slaves were kept in dungeons prior to being transported to the new world. The ports and coast support large fishing communities.
The road rambles into the decline,
One way to go, nowhere else to be.
The fresh water hurries to meet the sand, to wash with it to the sea.
Golden stretch in stone green embrace beneath a blanket of grey,
Torn to reveal a flash of blue,
and a golden promise behind the hill.
