...what would I do without my e-book at times...

Pos: here
Loc: Cabo Espíritu Santo
Acc: tent
Dist: 0 km

One more of those reading days…my tent is secured to the max, rocks on all flaps and pegs, but I’m still worried to leave it alone. All I need is for the fabric to tear or to rip a loop or guy line…well, it is possible, so my planned walk up the hill to see the boarder stations is not happening.

My tent site is actually in the beat available sheltered spot, if I’d only dare to stick my head around the corner to see the road uphill, I can’t even see or walk. The wind is really blowing, blowing, blowing…strong, and stronger in the gusts. Amazingly the tent sometimes gets blasted, sometimes less. The wind blows around the corner how it wants to…it blows in whirlwinds over the exposed sandy reef flat, and drives massive amounts of sand toward the sea, to make the sand flat even bigger!

I have to keep some windows open in my tent, as the sun is 50% shining, it is getting quite hot in here! But the sand blast goes through all bug nets, and it is slowly snowing sand here…well, I heard at home it is really snowing already!

I am almost through a book I started this morning, and all my sides of my body are sore from lying on them…I was at least getting outside for two hours, discovering that one sandy dune near my tent was pretty much wind free. I watched the wind blowing sand out to sea, and kept on reading…what would I do without my e-book?

Behind my beach’s end tent site was a lake with a few flamingos, but as I said, i didn’t dare to leave my tent!
So basically, a very uneventful day. the shaking and flattering of the tent flap is really going on your nerves eventually, and I’m just feeling sorry for the fabric getting so strained…but my Hilleberg Allak does the job! Never the less, I’ll swap to my other tent, a brand new Hilleberg Staika in Rio Grande, as it is not worn and sandblasted so far, and a tad bit more stable.

I also decided to get my spare kayak shipped to Rio Grande, as around the rough southern end I’d rather have all in perfect shape again!

On Pixabay you will find both, terrific photos and cliparts.
