Let’s Go On Safari…

At the end of our eventful passage from La Réunion we pulled into the delightful little South African town of Richards Bay. It’s a small town with a big port. After clearing in with officials we moved over to the Zululand Yacht Club and got a berth for our stay so we could get on with the general cleanup and leak stopping required after a passage with some nasty weather.

The first couple of days we spent in Richards Bay don’t warrant much mention, just a lot of work cleaning up the boat and the people. Unfortunately the town and the yacht club are in a bit of a pissing match so the town shut off the electricity to the yacht club the day we arrived. No warm showers:(

But, after we got rested and go the boat all cleaned up we decided to take advantage of our locale and took a trip for a couple of days to the little town of St. Lucia. Definitely a tourist destination with beaches and game preserves all around. We’d booked a one-day drive through the Hluhluwe uMfolozi game park. We also spent a day driving ourselves around Cape Vidal and taking in the sights. Below are just a few of the shots that filled the SD card.
