What a great trio the Meikle's were to tour with. They were so easy going and fun loving and were prepared to have a shot at anything which I certainly appreciated. We had a wonderful day with magnificent weather to enjoy the peninsula tour on and we certainly made great use of the opportunity to do so. The Miekle's were absolutley wonderful visitors to entertain in Cape Town and their wonderful fun loving attitude certainly made the day a fantastic one for me and I trust for them too.

THANKS A TON
JACK, MARION AND ALAN.

May I add a BIG THANK YOU for your handsome donation to help the kids in Kayamandi. Much appreciated.

Selwyn,

Thanks for e mail and your kind remarks!

Now back home to a cold frost here in Edinburgh and a max of 5 Celsius!

We really enjoyed our 2 weeks in Cape Town and Gauteng and one of the highlights was our Peninsula tour. Thanks so much for making that so special for us!

The photos are spectacular, yours and ours and the memories will "aye be there"

We will be back, I am sure and we will be back in touch!

Thanks again.

Jack, Marion, Alan
