Cape Verde Islands
Andrea Repositioning November 2008

Up early to see Cape Verde Islands only to be told by Kevin that we were actually in the middle of the islands as they cover a vast stretch of ocean. We sailed past Praia and I think we were all rather grateful that we didn't stop as it looked rather bleak and dreary. Instead we sailed past Sotavento and Santiago and then around Fogo which is a volcano whose last eruption was 10 years ago. The lava flow was quite visible from the ship. Lots of seabirds.
