Today was a free for everyone to explore Cape Town and the surrounding area. Peter, John, Dave, Otto and I followed the coast to Cape Point, back into wine country Stellenbosch and lunched near Franschhoek (Allee Bleu). We then rode back to Cape Town to meet our guide Frank. Baboons are pests here. They’re often chased away out of inhabited areas and are not afraid of people. At one point during the ride I almost hit a baby baboon who darted across the road from its troop. I didn’t want to slow down too much and end up being swarmed by the rest of the troop.

We drove out to Cape Point this day. Wow! It was absolutely amazing to be standing at the Cape of Good Hope! It was still sunny and warm so it was a perfect day! That afternoon, we went to the Victoria and Alfred waterfront mall. We did some shopping and I also bought some CDs of some great music that we had heard down there that we had not heard back home. One was an older Kylie Minogue and the other was Lena Fiagbe. Good stuff! We had a great seafood meal at the mall and then explored the area some more. This was the last night here, so we made it a good one. Stayed out drinking a little bit.... read more
