I go down the gangway and leave the ship. A new life in Namibia is about to begin. My thanks go to everyone on the Bright Sky.
The Bright Sky reaches Walvis Bay and I reach my destination. But I stay on board for another day. I’m not on the journey anymore, but not ashore either.
The Bright Sky has reached Namibian waters. I have to say goodbye to the flying fish, but I see several birds and dolphins.
I spend most of the day on the bow balcony watching flying fish, shearwaters and dolphins.
Despite the bad weather I go outside and have an immediate encounter with some dolphins. Furthermore I think about physics.
I describe the way to the bow of the Bright Sky and tell you how I spend the afternoon there – looking for animals and entertaining with all sorts of people.
Pierre celebrates his birthday. We think about what was and what will come.
We cross the equator. In the morning I see a massive whale jumping out of the water, in the evening I experience a violent thunderstorm.
What species of Flying Fish are there? What do they look like? How do Flying Fish fly? These questions are answered with photos.
The Bright Sky travels to an area with many tropical thunderstorms. There is a lot of garbage in the ocean.
