Wandering Into Sand & Sea ~ Destination Twelve

We are wandering off again!

Congratulations to Lee of Dancing Crow, who won the last point! Great job! That was a tough one. The scores now stand as follows: Michelle (Bleeding Espresso) has 4 points, Heart in SF (Guilty With An Explanation) has 2 points, Rel (Under the Microscope) has 2 points and Lee (Dancing Crow) has tied them with 2 points! Fantastic work everyone!

If you haven't started playing then join in! We have a long way to go and right now the possibilities are wide open! Viaggiatore (the lion on the beach at the top of the page) and I are wandering around the world throughout the year 1893. Everything that we are seeing will either have been invented, discovered or existed by that year. At the end of the journey, whoever has the most points (earned by guessing where we are or whom or what we've gone to see) will win The Wanderer's Treasure Bag!

Viaggiatore and I love the sea. But we're not quite there yet... where have we gone now?

Destination Twelve ~

By an ocean of water and still it is sear.
A cemetery of ships too far from the waves.
A very deep beach.

**extra hints**

We are south of Angola... and it is very dangerous here. There is but one way into these foggy gates of hell and no way out.

Good luck!

Apparently I'm not the only one who can't figure this one out. Can you provide another clue, Scarlett?

Wanderlust Scarlett said...

Okay... I will put up more clues!

There is an inland sea in Angola and Lobito Bay, which can accommodate large ships although it is far inland. The slave trade flourished in the region under the invading Portuguese in 1893.

Dear Hearts,

None of these ships are alive any longer... it is a graveyard...

;o)

In the 1800's, two ancient wooden shipwrecks which may have been Phoenician galleys were discovered in the sand of the Cape Flats outside Cape Town. There is also a theory that the ships may have been abandoned by the 15th Century Chinese Admiral, Zheng He, who explored the African coast, among other places.

Still useless at this sort of thing, but just called in to see how you are?

Wanderlust Scarlett said...

Hearts, my dear, we are not quite that far south of Angola... in fact, we are *really* close to Angola... but just a bit south of their border... in a ships graveyard...


Suburbia!

So nice to see you! We miss you around here so much.
We're good! We'll be by to check on you, too.
HUGS!
XOXO
