I shared this tour of 11 folk from North Carolina, hence my naming them the  NC11 tour J, with my brother Robert.  We all met up at Avanti Guesthouse and set off on a Cape Winelands tour

 

Our first stop was at Villiera winefarm where the next pictures were taken

Sam and Ann decided to tackle the penguins in unison. JJ

 

We travelled around the Peninsula via Red Hill and then it seemed as if we lost contact with Roberts group so I moved on and took those with me up Table Mountain where the above photo was taken.

The NC11's were a great group to travel with. Considering that they made up 11 people it was quite amazing to see how they decided on what to do in unison with such great ease. This made touring with them a great pleasure. Much fun was had by all and overall a great tour for Robert and myself.

THANK YOU TO ALL THE NC11's
