A New Year

1.1.10 – Friday – The New Year did not start calmly. The wind blew fiercely from the southeast, clouds piling on Table Mountain and then tumbling down and disappearing.

Clouds over Table Mountain

We finished our shopping for the next month (or was it for the next year?) and carried all the stuff to the boat. After bringing the club’s trolleys back to their place we stopped by the restaurant where a happy crowd was guzzling the free beer that the club provides traditionally on the first day of the New Year. We felt obliged to help them a bit but could not compete with the performance of the locals.

Tomorrow should be calmer and hopefully we’ll set sail. First destination: Luderitz, Namibia.
