Vacation - second week

Living in Cape Town we have so much to do at our doorstep so -  

Tuesday we took our bikes and met Martin's mom for breakfast half way at a Wine Farm - 63km!!!

Wednesday, Martin went to the Aquarium and I met Mari for coffee at the V&A Waterfront! Sitting in a balcony looking out over the Cape Town Harbour, good coffee, good friends, good view! 

Thursday we drove to Pringlebay a little vacation town next to the ocean! We had a wonderful dinner at Hook, Line & Sinker and on Friday rode the bikes from Pringlebay to Kleinmond - 53km!!! We stopped and had breakfast and on our way back took a scenic route and got these beautiful Mountain bike pics (3km gravel road - AWESOME).

Friday night and Saturday night we had a braai with friends and Sunday went to see 007's new movie. 

It was a great vacation!

Vacation - first week

Martin had 3 Sundays off in a row! The first week we drove to George and visited Daniel & Elzette and Andre, and DeWyk. 

We took a long bike ride from George to Wilderness which was a 52km ride! It was awesome with beautiful view points and a fabulous breakfast once we got into Wilderness. 

It rained for 4 days straight! We got to hang out in the mall and ate sushi with Andre! We watched Body of Lies, Hortan hears a Who, and yes Jack Black in Natsho Libre! 

Last couple of days we stayed at a condo called Sea Breeze with room for 8... It is situated in Victoria Bay and is a wonderful little post stamp beach. A dead whale washed out on the rocks, so the little beach at Victoria Bay was a little fishy. We drove to another beach and had one day in the sun before returning to Cape Town.

Cape Point

We drove to Cape Point on Saturday morning and had a great time there! This place is filled with history of our country of the first ships to arrive - 1488

On our way we stopped in Kalkbay, drove by a ton of baboons (big and small) and walked to the top of the light tower, to find the most amazing view! 

We finished our day with a beautiful African sunset and braai (bbq).

Table Mountain

My first time up on Table Mountain was shared by our American friends! It was amazing to hear other people talk about our country and exclaiming how postcard beautiful it is! There was a cloud rolling over the mountain after we got up there, and it was COLD (but we loved it anyway).
