Simonsig Winery - StellenboschWow! Stunning scenery - winery with great character - and our tour guide really knew his stuff! Champagne, a slutty white (story behind this) and fine reds - glad we had a driver!
Muratie WineryUsed cobwebs to great advantage - Jan had to be restrained from de-spidering - lovely vintage ports.
Table Mtn from StellenboschAn interesting, distant view of Table Mountain from the Stellenbosch winery district - our villa on opposite side.
ProteaKirstenbrosch Gardens, on the southern slopes of Table Mountain. Totally South African natives - here a beautiful protea -gorgeous place.
Pink IbisWe've often walked around Sydney & its parks thinking how ugly the ibis is - SA has a pink ibis - small & cute.
Hout BayThis was a lovely fishing centre south of Camps Bay. Enjoyed calamari & a local white from a sunny deck.
Seal IslandDespite rain and a stiff breeze we were impressed with our short boat trip out to Seal Island - the rocky surface was hidden by thousands of seals.
Souvenir StallsAt every tourist venue, bus stop, point of interest - there were tables of souvenirs being flogged - even in the rain.
African PenguinHad a close up and personal visit to an African Penguin colony - bigger than our fairy penguins, pink around the eyes - they ignored us too!
Cape PointCape Point is the most south easterly point of South Africa - the most southerly point is undeveloped & boring, so this spot gets the tourists - wow, it is so spectacular, high above the ocean.
Sydney SignAt Cape Point we found a sign post to a familiar place.
Cape of Good HopeAdjacent to Cape Point is the more well known, Cape of Good Hope. This is our infamous touring group - the Aussie / Canadian Connection.
