Saturday/ the V&A Waterfront

My friend Marlien and I ran out to the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront in Cape Town, the way we normally do when she visits me here.  We did not stay too long, though : a blustery wind came up and made it unpleasant, and so we left early.   I see my picture of the Enigma XK does not quite do it justice.  Checking into it again later, I found out that it used to be a fisheries patrol vessel, but has been turned into a luxury expedition yacht !  I think that some of the spectacular pictures on the link were taken in Antarctica.
