It’s been a while since the last post, but we’ve been so busy…and time flies by with incredible pace. The mission at the moment is to get Melody ready to sail to Simonstown to take her out of the water. We want to replace anodes, clean her bottom and add a couple of extra seacocks, which will be quite handy. Hopefully we can make the trip in 3weeks time.
In the last week I fitted our ‘braai’ on the pushpit. For our international readers, ‘braai’ means barbeque over here in South Africa. I made some chicken on the braai on Saterday and it was wonderful having the smell of ‘rooikrans’ wood fill the moorings. In a very traditional South African braai setup, chicken will and can be considered a vegetable, as we are very fond of our red meat. Willhelm brought some fresh rolls and then we had lovely veggie-chicken rolls on our new cockpit benches, before commencing with our graft. Living it up.
ps: a walkthrough video of our awesome melody coming soon…
