A Weekend at Sipi Falls

Since Leo has come along, it's not easy for Eric and I to find time to simply be together.  When we do have time, we tend to primarily focus on the tasks that have been neglected in favor of our son's needs.  So this year, for our 3rd anniversary, we packed up the car and took our first family vacation to Sipi Falls in Eastern Uganda.

I hadn't been to this place for several years and it was so lovely to spend the weekend here with nothing to do except be together.  Sipi Falls consists of three separate waterfalls on the side of Mount Elgon, bordering Kenya.  We explored the first two falls on a long hike and the last and greatest one, we gazed at as the sun set.  We were spoiled at Sipi River Lodge - by far the lodge with the most to offer - with great food, home-roasted and locally-grown coffee, a cozy cabin, a friendly guide, and exclusive access to the second waterfall roaring just outside our window.

This is truly a place of endless beauty and I am so grateful for the short time we were able to take advantage of this lush landscape.
