Carol Stafford & Larry D'Arcy
London - UK
18 October 2001
I met Carol and Larry at the Cape Grace Hotel. After a short discussion we decided on touring the Cape Peninsula for the day.
We first travelled past the city centre and stopped outside the District 6 area where I gave Larry and Carol, an understanding as to what happened during the Apartheid era in South Africa. We then travelled on past UCT, Claremont and Constantia. We moved on to Pollsmoor Prison where we took a short drive through the prison area and thereafter we decided on having lunch at the Barnyard restaurant. We all had some wonderful bobotie for lunch.
After lunch we travelled to Muizenberg, Kalk Bay & Yokohama House (paper house). While travelling along the False Bay coast we spotted some whales frollicking in the sea. We then travelled on past Fish Hoek and Simonstown and then on to the Penguin Colony at Boulders Beach.
Apologies for the quality of the photos on this webpage as it seems as if my camera lens was smudged - Drats!

After the penguin colony visit we drove on to the Cape of Good Hope Reserve where we saw chacma babboon as well as bontebok.

Proof that we made it to "The Point" J
After Cape Point we travelled on to Scarborough, Misty Cliffs and eventually my "number 10" spot at the Slangkop lighthouse.
We moved on past Ocean View and Silvermine and retraced our steps to the Cape Grace.
A great day was had by all.
Thanks Carol & Larry for being such wonderful folk to tour with.
