Back from safari

February 20, 2016

Okay. I hope you’ve been wondering where we have been.

Just after Christmas we gave up sailing to Cape Town to meet friends coming in from Canada. We rented a car and drove instead of sailing. Our New Years was spent in Simon’s Town with our Canadian friends Sierd and Elsbie. Then we picked up two more friends, Sania and Rob, and headed off on a week in the wine district north of Cape Town.

Happy times in Franshoek

After a thorough time of sampling wines we went on a 4 week camping trip to Namibia starting off in Cape Town and driving up the west coast of South Africa then into Namibia and ending up in Windhoek before flying back to South Africa.

Starred places we visited

The starred places are places we visited on our camping trip

We are now back on-board Sage waiting for the right weather window to take us to Simon’s Town.

Hold on a little longer for a pictorial review.  It takes a little time to organize a thousand photos!

    Great to hear from you! Look forward to the pictures. We return to the boat at the end of the month. This season we head to the Med, via Atlantic France, Channel Islands, Spain, Portugal and Gibralter. Returning to Victoria in Sept as grandchild #2 expected. Life is good.
