Time Bandit

We’ve loved South Africa but it’s time to move on. In this last third of the year we’re heading for Namibia, St Helena, Brazil, Suriname (wherever that is) and the Caribbean. Come along for the ride. YouTube: SV Time Bandit

Watched Kettles

19 October 2022
Tick, tick, tick. All day we've watched the clock as we hurtle north west up the Brazilian coast, our fourth equator crossing looming on the distant horizon. Quite different from the last time in Indo, as us old Asian hands call it, when about twenty of us anchored on 00.00.00 and had a bit of a party - just before a squall blew in catching some revellers up their masts taking pics, some swimming between boats clutching a glass and others not on their boats at all.

Tick, tick, tick. The afternoon passes as does the evening…… It's now dark and, like a boiling kettle, we don’t seem to be getting any closer, no matter how hard we stare at the lat/long. it's nearly midnight and then, with a rush, and a splash of Amarello over the side, well, about half a bottle actually, we A) toasted Neptune and B) got shot of the rather sickly, Baileys type cream liqueur that tasted so good of a late African evening, sat on the front of the safari 4WD, watching the hippos grunt and fart in the pool as the sun went down. Out of context, it never quite tasted the same.

I hope Neptune liked it or we're stuffed.

Welcome back “oop north”.
