Aristea Ship Wreck

examining my very first ship wreck, after missing the skeleton coast in Namibia

Hondeklip Bay, South Africa

Duration: 

Friday, November 4, 2016

Personal highlights

  1. Aristea: Scottish fisher boat used as a minesweeper
  2. History: wrecked by a drunken captain, steered into a rock
  3. Ship Wrecks: the first for me after missing the skeleton coast
  4. Hondeklip: having a cold coke in the sleepy bay village
  5. Overland: just a little detour off the Cape Namibia Trail
