I met the Keetons at the Fountain Hotel in town and we immediately set off to ascend Table Mountain as the weather was good and I was unsure as to what the weather would be like for the next two days.

Oh I nearly forgot please note that Leo (in Hannah's hands) followed us everywhere as will be seen later in all the tour pictures. JJ

       The town ship

The people in the town ship
Are very very poor
And they will smile,
And smile and smile some more

The people in the town ship
If you saw it yourself
It would make you cry
And then you will say
There for the grace of god go I.

 

 

We went for diner to the Ocean Basket in the waterfront

 


 

Day 2

We started our day by going for breakfast to the Gardeners Cottage

The Keeton's were a fabulous family to travel with. The way that I want to remember them is so well typified in the 2nd sunset photo on Chapmans Peak. The photo typifies their character as a family so well in that they stand together as one very tight and happy unit no matter what adversity they face. The Keetons were such a great family to show around Cape Town. Harry and Hannah were an absolute delight while Steve and Eileen just went with the flow and I believe enjoyed our journey together. All in all an incredibly memorable time was had by all and it was really very hard to say goodbye to this wonderful family at the Africa Cafe on the night that we parted company.

THANKS SO MUCH FOR MAKING YOUR TOUR SUCH A MEMORABLE ONE FOR ME
STEVE, EILEEN,
HARRY and HANNAH
and oops I nearly forgot Leo!
