Thursday 22 November.

Dirk-jan and Inge go at 7 o clock AM for a morning walk along the Indian Ocean.

They have told us yesterday that at 8 o clock the penguins will be feed near the light house.

Nobody near the light house, but they see a couple of penguins.


They make a beautiful walk along the seaside.



Today we will visit Colin Ferreira, who helped us with finding tyres in South Africa for our Model T.

We will meet at a round abound and he will wait in his “witte bakkie”; a white pick up.

Almost everybody with a car has a “witte bakkie”
