from Cape Town to Hout Bay

..we have just filled up with fuel here at the Royal Cape Yacht Club, in prep for our trip to Brazil and will leave for Hout Bay at 5am with a NW wind to blow us down there.
It has been very nice being moored near the centre of Cape Town but now we long for the tranquil, personal & beautiful setting of Hout Bay, which is about 15 miles south of Cape Town. My cousins live down in that area (Noordhoek) so it´ll be easy to pop in to see them; I havent seen them for 8 years!! And they are holding some packages for us one of which will include a supply of genuine Maple Syrup!!

Its also an easy hop from Hout Bay to Cape Point - the tip of the Cape of Good Hope, which we will explore by car and foot. From there we´ll be able to view the big ocean(s) we just sailed through.

We had a tough (coz we´re a bit unfit!) but enjoyable hike up Newlands Ravine to top of Table Mountain this morning - all very beautiful and we could see Freefall in the distance below! ;-)

That´s all for now.
