#468 Hello Cape Town!

It's good to be in calm sunny Cape Town.

After a day's windy weather delay, the MV Explorer slipped between the narrow concrete portals marking the entrance to Cape Town's Victoria and Alfred (yes, Alfred) harbor.
When John Muir arrived in Cape Town aboard the SS Windhuk (yes, Windhuk) in 1912 he wrote "No town that I have ever seen has so wonderful a background"

Ninety-nine years later, Cape Town's same background of Table Mountain, Lion's Head, and Signal Hill do not disappoint.

Yours in following John Muir first to Manaus and now Cape Town,
