03 December 2017 | Zululand Yacht Club pontoons, Richard's Bay
It's Boo Hoo with Chris and Polly, Stew and Kim returning N of the equator; and Hooray for Stew and Kim's big announcement out of Cape Town.
We all had a super time together, even without the game park, the hips and crocs in the wetlands and the cheetahs and other medium cats at the sanctuary. Paul was a great driver-guide who did his absolute utmost to get us around and to see everything possible. Sadly, the big cats kept out of sight, but the rest of the local fauna were magnificent - as per Roly the Rhino in the pic.
Our time together on DC was nicely relaxed, with dinner in the Club, and we finished off in Durban.
Having taken Polly to the airport for her return to Dubai, the rest carried on to 'our' guesthouse, which didn't disappoint. The only setback was at 'our' Indian restaurant where they went a bit mental with the chilli, so that we could hardly eat it. My tongue was numb for hours after, and we gave the several resultant doggy bags to a local on the street. I hope he's OK!
Anyway, back alone together on DC, it is a bit tidier, and I can fit the various bits the boys brought out and focus on being ready for new crew - Nic and Jez - in Jan.
