South Africa 2014
View from Highcliffe House
We'll after spending 46 1/2 hours (door to door) travelling we finally arrived at our Winter retreat on December 31st, Tuesday afternoon. Our hosts, Jane and Jim Yeomans invited us to a New Years get together at their place (Highcliff House) and we met some of their friends and family. We actually made it until midnight and therefore saw the New Year, at least in South Africa. (7 hours ahead of TO)
It's been quite a long period of adjusting to the time zone change and we wouldn't recommend taking 2 back to back overnight flights. It's been several days and we still are experiencing interrupted sleep.
Gordons Bay is about 1 hour outside of Cape Town with neighbouring communities such as Strand (5 km beech), Somerset West and about 40 minutes drive to Stellenbosch which is a beautiful town in the middle to South African wine country.
Our accommodation is quite nice and is part of 4 units. The owners Jim and Jane (mentioned above) live in 1 unit. There is a fabulous view of the mountains to the East and Gordons Bay to the West.
