Thinking for ourselves

On Monday we hired a car and Bonnie, Shannon and I followed Amelia and Gavin down to Cape Point. Very different driving around in a tiny little car too the truck. It was very windy at the Cape and we walked up to the light house and nearly got blown off.

We then went to a penguin colony and enjoyed a lovely lunch at Betty's. I tried some pickled fish and then had fish, calamari and chips, ending with a Malva pudding. We were very tired heading back into Cape Town.

On Tuesday Bonnie and I headed to Hermanus. We ended up staying at a really old hotel by the beach and were able to look out into the bay and see whales - an amazing sight. We took a boat tour out into the bay and got really close views of the whales diving and swimming and also a pod of dolphins racing the boat. Both remarkable creatures.

At the moment we are in Mossel Bay - it took a lot longer to drive to than expected and it has a very different feel than Hermanus. We are spending the morning here then are going to spend tonight at a game lodge. Cannot believe that the African adventure is nearly over.
