Pocahontas and her sister
Image by Gunn Shots (On and off these days)
Two derelict tug boats off Five Pines Point in China Camp, one is called Pocahontas, but I can’t discern the name of her sister. I looked up the details, and she went into service in 1942 with the US Navy, it was sold to a private company in 1976 and is currently logged as derelict.

Quick Cape Town Fact: Why are the houses in Bo-Kaap district painted in bright colours? The original residents of this area in Cape Town were descendants of slaves brought in from Africa and Asia and were Muslims. As part of their religion they celebrate Ramadan – the Islamic month of fasting. At the end of the holy month it is tradition to dress up in brightly coloured clothes and at the same time many of the residents then paint their houses. The reason for getting so many different colours is that the residents and neighbours discuss together what colours they are painting their houses to avoid colour clashes or two houses painted the same colour next to each other.
