A cropped shot of the zoomed in photo of the red and white sculptured sandstone cliffs on the way to Majunga/Mahajanga. They were gorgeous and I really wished I had a big zoom on a fancy camera for these.
But you can get the idea. Some cliffs were white sandstone.
Another view of some red and white cliffs. They remind me of the Anazazi cliff dwelling sites.
Pretty amazing natural formations, I think. Looking through the binoculars, they looked stunning!
Some need a bit more mending than others! I wonder how they even sail without shredding. Note the guy way out on the outrigger to keep the boat flat in the water. Probably a nice place to ride back on, too.
While the men took care of the business with the Port Captain/Harbor Master and got us new clearance papers, the women went shopping and photo taking. I loved the intricate carving down the center of the door and the molding on this entry way.
A sunken ship at the wharf in Mahajanga. We think one of its lines must've broken when the wind blew and it just rolled at the wharf, tipped and sunk. Men were working to cut it up while we were there. We had to move out of the protection of the breakwater when a cargo ship came in so they could use tugs and barges to offload the containers of stuff. They didn't want the barges weaving between yachts, so we all moved out of the way.
