I met the Lubitz family at the Cape Town airport in the late evening and took them to the Portswood Hotel where they would be staying for their Cape Town holiday.
We started off on our winelands journey by stopping in at the Butterfly farm where I took the next 4 photos.

Kelly the brave JJ
Dad steps in on the act too. JJ
We stopped in at The Corksrew Antique shop and viewed the huge corkscrew collection.
We travelled on to the Cheetah Foundation where the family had great fun petting the cheetahs.
We stopped in at De Zoete Inval for lunch where Alex gave us a great display in hamburger munching. JJ
We travelled on to Kayamandi where I took the following 2 photos
We returned to Cape Town and that evening Judy, Rob and I went to the Africa Cafe for a fabulous African feast while Alex and Kelly got some much needed sleep after their safari up country.
Penguin Colony, Robben Island and the Waterfront
After much deliberation with the weather playing an important role in the decision making the Lubitz's decided to see the penguin colony and then to visit Robben Island in the morning. We first travelled to the penguin colony at Boulders Beach and then we returned to the Robben Island ferry where a very seaworthy Lubitz family boarded the catamaran so as to do the afternoon tour of the island.
The Lubitz's returning from their Robben Island tour.
We walked around the Waterfront doing some last minute
Here we see the whole family in front of the harbour with Table Mountain in the background.
We traveled on to the Cape Town airport where I unfortunately had to say goodbye to the Lubitz's but not before Alex gave us a display of floor sliding as the above picture shows. JJ
The Lubitz's were quite tired when they arrived in Cape Town after completing quite a tough schedule of touring through many other parts of the country before arriving in the mother city. The weather also was not that favorable to tour in while the Lubitz's were in town and we thus could not amongst others ascend Table Mountain. Notwithstanding this the whole family adapted well to the situation and we had a good time touring around Cape Tow and its surrounds. Considering all of the above I feel that we covered most of what could be covered in Cape Town and in doing so had great fun together.
THANK YOU ROB, JUDY, ALEX AND KELLY.
