Zoonie arrives in South Africa
Sat 21 Nov 2020 14:35
Delighted to be able to tell you all that we arrived safely after a varied crossing of 12 days and are now sorting Zoons out for some shore-side living. Tasha has told us there are monkeys about who will come and inspect us and not to swim in the marina water because of the crocodile, who needs a safari!
On Monday the clearing in process starts and we will have a Covid test too. The results take about 24 hours, then Health and Immigration come but we have to get a taxi to Customs as they are short staffed. Hopefully by Wednesday we can move around to the marina, which is more rural, and go ashore!! There is a restaurant here where one of us can order food which they then bring to the boat, we are not allowed in the restaurant until we get a negative result and are cleared in.
We did 1580 miles and used 101 engine hours. So from Fremantle to Richards Bay was 5493 miles since the 21st September with a nineteen day stop in Reunion.
We three are fine and looking forward to being stopped!!
Have a grand weekend.
Lots of love,
Rob and Barb xxxxxx
