It's not a bad life....

Whilst El Vagabond has been safely tied up in Durban Marina, we have been enjoying ourselves exploring Zululand.
Within a few days of our arrival we managed to find a private Game Reserve where we could stay with the dogs which was absolutely fantastic. After 2 months at sea, we all deserved some "Landtime" so we drove about 4 hours from Durban where Basil spent 5 days enjoying himself teasing the Giraffes while Vicki relaxed in the Jacuzzi and watched the Wildebeests, Bison, Warthogs etc running around on our doorstep .....
This was followed by Christmas week which was mainly spent enjoying the wonderful food prepared by the Royal Natal Yacht Club including a full Christmas Eve Buffet Lunch which we enjoyed with some fellow OCC members. Sadly, the Club wasn't open on Christmas Day so Vicki cooked a traditional Christmas Lunch instead. We definitely need to go back on a diet pretty soon......
Then we were off to the Battlefields area for New Year to visit Isandlwana, Rorke's Drift and Blood River. Another amazing trip. We did, of course, watch Zulu again upon our return !!!
It is now time to move on and it looks like we will have a weatherbox to leave here tomorrow to head around to Port Elizabeth - a trip of about 400 miles.
Overall, not a bad start to the South African part of our Honeymoon !!!
