The weather changed a bit for today, windy conditions with some overcast and rough seas. The sun came out fairly early and, aside from the wind, it was a lovely day. It was a good day to sit and read. We have a total of 3 sea days on our way to Durban, South Africa. I will be leaving the ship for a few days to go on safari. I will be flying to Port Elizabeth and traveling to Amakhala Game Reserve. We will be staying at Hilsnek Lodge, a new place for me. I have been to Amakhala on 2 other occasions but stayed at the Safari Lodge. I am really looking forward to going on safari…. Just love that! I will rejoining the ship in Cape Town. It’s a shame that I will miss the visit by the CEO of Holland America, Stein Kruse and his wife Linda along with a very special guest Archbishop Desmond Tutu….. Oh well, can’t have everything! Hope after we pass Madagascar that the weather will improve for tomorrow…..
