We arrived at Phil's folks house in Somerset West the day before Phil's birthday. Steve, Michele & the kids came round for the weekend to catch up & help celebrate Phil being 34 years young.
The rest of the week was spent lazing around with the exception of one day when we took a drive up to the West Coast Nature Reserve to see the flowers. They bloom for about 6 weeks of the year and it is quite spectacular to see so much colour in what is normally a barren area. All the flowers track the sun during the day, so it's not uncommon to be travelling through a field wondering what all the hype is about when you turn around to be confronted with a sea of colour.
Wednesday 23rd was spent preparing for the next leg of our adventure...
