We had fabulous weather in Cape Town and decided that the day would be perfect to do a Cape Peninsula tour.

We started out early on Cape Winelands tour. We first visited the upmarket sector of Sea Point in Arcadia Road and then moved on to the Winelands. We stopped at Plattekloof (Flat Hills) along the way and then moved on to Muratie Winefarm.

We stopped in at an antique shop while traveling through Stellenbosch
After our travels in Stellenbosch
we joined Trudie at Amani winefarm for a winetasting.
After our winetasting we had a sandwich lunch on the scenic rooftop of the Amani building
After our Amani visit we travelled to Kayamandi where the following 4 pictures were taken.

Jill wanted to find a lady carrying something on her head throughout her travels and when we found the lay in the above picture Jill could not resist having me take this picture.
We travelled back to Cape Town and went to the Jewel Tavern for dinner. A great meal was had by all as can be seen from the photograph.

I met up with all at Camps Bay Terrace for breakfast where the following picture was taken. Afterwards everybody went to the V&A Waterfront to do shopping. Later on in the evening it was a case of having to say goodbye as Jill, Dave and Don departed from the Cape Town airport back to Atlanta.
Wow! this tour was a joke a minute as everybody was ragging one another in the most friendly way that I have experienced for a long time. Great fun. It was an absolute pleasure to travel with this trio a they brought so much fun to the tour yet on other occasions sat back and took in all that was going on around them in such a way that they really enjoyed the fabulous beauty that was surrounding them. All in all a fun-filled very enjoyable journey around Cape Town and the Cape Winelands for which I simply have to say
" THANK YOU Dave, Jill and Don."

We are home after 24 hours in the air. We would like to thank you for the
wonderful tour that you supplied. You showed us a part of Africa that we
would have missed. If you would like to use our name and phone number to talk
with future customers, please feel free. Now to go through all the mail,
unpack, clean the house, weed the garden, and mow the lawn. I guess that
means that vacation is over for now. Jill will return to work tomorrow and
Don just left to see his mother.
