New Years in South Africa

We celebrated the New Year by climbing the KleinHangklip (Afrikaans for “small hanging rock”) above Rooi Elis to see the sun rise.

We are staying with Marti & Illah and their children who bought  a house here in Rooi Els a few years ago and spend summer and winter holidays in South Africa. It is a small town within a nature reserve. Today was incredibly windy – Illah wanted us to pick mussels at the beach for lunch, but the wind was very strong and waves were too big- so we had to be satisfied with watching the big waves crashing on the rocks.

The wind here is notoriously strong – can gust to 160 Km/H – one of the reasons there were many shipwreck around the Cape of Good Hope.
