Hout Bay Heritage Day bay trip

This seemed like a good idea and so it was but why were we the only sailing boat out that day?
With a very light NW breeze, sailing would have been slow progress going out, I guess having a Dix Designed yacht we would have sailed back in ok of course.

Not that we carried any sail ourselves, it was on a rising tide and the SW swell was lifting, a mile or so out and the waves were a little confused.

As you can see, it was not so warm out there yesterday but what the heck,we had a nice time.

 Was the presence of a large whale an attraction?

Jean later asked me what type it was, she got my standard reply.

It was a large black one.
