After months of correspondence between Alison and myself I eventually met up with Alison and Rachel at the Holiday Inn Waterfront where we immediately embarked on our Peninsula tour.

 

 

After traveling through Cape Town we travelled on to Muizenberg and Kalk Bay where the above photo was taken of Alison and  a local fisherman in the Kalk Bay harbour.

 

After a fish  lunch at Kalkies I took this picture of Alison and Rachel in front of the Kalk Bay harbour

 

We stopped in at the penguins at Boulders Beach as can be seen from the above photo.

 

We travelled on to Cape Point where I took this picture of Rachel and Alison at the Point.

 

After our visit to Cape Point we travelled to "The Statues" where I took the below fun photos.

 

 

We travelled back to Cape Town and ended our tour by ascending what turned out to be a rather windy Table Mountain.

Sunset on Table Mountain - What a way to end a tour of Cape Town!

 

After our Table Mountain journey we visited the Jewel Tavern restaurant for a wonderful Chinese dinner and  where we had this picture taken of the 3 of us.


After months of planning this day turned out to be a wonderful event. Much was discussed as we toured relative to the South African situation and in the process I gained lots from Alison and Rachel. It truly turned out to be a grand day of travelling in Cape Town and as much as I think that Alison and Rachel enjoyed the day I enjoyed it as much.

Thanks Alison and Rachel.

Selwyn,

We send YOU a great big thank you back! We loved our day with you -- it was 
really a highlight. And we loved lunch and dinner....thank you so much.

The pictures are great and I have already emailed them to friends and family. 

Our flights were uneventful and we both arrived safely home. It was a 
wonderful 3 weeks and I can't tell you how much I appreciated your advice and 
helpfulness before we embarked on our journey and, of course, while we were 
there.

It was great meeting you and hearing about apartheid, life in the new South 
Africa and your opinions on Israel/Jewish community, etc. That was a 
wonderful opportunity for us and added a dimension to our visit.

Many thanks again for your kindness....and of course for a great tour. 
Please be sure to look us up if you are ever in the Los Angeles/Orange County 
area.

All the best to you and Bette for a happy, healthy new year and may 2003 
bring peace to all the world. (AND bring prosperity and health to 
all the peoples of the "new" South Africa.)

Alison
