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...

The swell at the West Coast Nature reserve was pretty big!

We had lunch at Zorgvliet where we were married last year
