A Rainy Day in Cape Town

With a weather report indicating a maximum of 20 degrees with a 30% chance of rain one tends to look on the bright side and overlook that small chance of rain. Today in Hout Bay “Conquest” was one of five RIB’s preparing to take tourists to Chapman Peak and Seal Island. Normally a beautiful run, but today the weather added to the adventure by providing a decent swell and some rain. Unfortunately the passengers got a bit wet but much fun was had by all. Since we took it “easy” the trip was gentle and even the slighlty faint hearted could relax and enjoy braving the seas of the Cape of Storms. Highlights included the dramatic mountainside views of Chapmans Peak, The Sentinal and Seal Island, home to numerous Cape Fur Seals.
