I had been asked by Sandra Uys of Rennies Travel to tour with Jack and Britt and within seconds of meeting this wonderful couple at the Cape Grace Hotel I just knew this was going to be great tour. We sat down in the study of the Cape Grace and together we worked out an itinerary for the next 2 days. We decided to start our tour in the Winelands

We drove out to Plattekloof and then on to the Afrikaans Language monument where we took the 2 photos seen below.

The Reigo's are dwarfed by the monument.

 

We stopped in at Seidelberg Wine farm where we enjoyed a winetatsting and a wonderful cheese platter
We see Britt and Jack just before we left the venue with Gerrit van Niekerk of Seidelberg smiling in the background.

 

We travelled on to Franschhoek and took this photo of Britt and Jack in front of the Franschhoek Valley.

We stopped in at the Corkscrew Antiques shop where Britt bought a lock from the Blue Train goods carriages

We then travelled on to Stellenbosch and did a short tour of the town and then moved on to Kaya Mandi.

Britt, Maria Bossie, my friend Speech and Jack smile for the camera in Maria's nursery school.

 

In the next 2 pictures one can see how much fun the Reigo's had with the wonderful children of Kaya Mandi.

After our visit to Kaya Mandi we travelled back to Table Mountain so as to try and see sunset from the mountain top. Alas it was so heavily crowded that we forewent the trip and went to take in Sunset on the Glen Beach outside Camps Bay. After this event we went on to the Africa Cafe where we met Bette and together we had a splendid African feast.

 

In the above two pictures we see Briit and Jack having fun while speaking to our local "wizard" and what you can see is their facial expressions when the wizard correctly nominated their secret card to them. J

 

Here you see all 4 of us after we had had a great African feast at the restaurant. Sorry for the blurring but as you can see I did not take the photo.  J

I fetched Britt and Jack from the Cape Grace Hotel after they had checked out and we loaded their cases before we started out on a Cape Peninsula journey. Because we missed ascending Table Mountain the night before we decided to start the morning with the highlight of going up Table Mountain first.

 

Britt and Jack enjoy the view from the top of the mountain

 

While everybody else in this photo was busy signing up to abseil down the mountain Britt decided to give the adventure a miss. J

 

After our visit to Table Mountain we travelled on to Muizenberg where we took this photo.

 

We stopped in at Kalk Bay Harbour where we had fun with the local fisherman and then had a fish platter lunch at Kalkies restaurant

 

After lunch we travelled through Fish Hoek and  Simonstown. We then visited the Penguin Colony as can be seen from this picture.

 

After our visit to the Penguin colony we travelled on to Cape Point where we took the photos as seen below.

 

After our journey to Cape Point we headed back to the airport. We first stopped in at Slangkop lighthouse where we took this picture with the magnificent Hout Bay area in the background.

Touring with Britt and Jack was one of the most enjoyable tours I have ever had and this was only because of the fabulous personalities that both these wonderful folk displayed. Both Britt and Jack are fabulous, caring individuals who in unison make such an amazing couple to be friendly with. They showed enormous understanding into all that South Africa represents and I suspect are going to become great friends of our wonderful country. What more can one say other than thank you so much Britt and Jack for honouring me with your company and giving me great pleasure in having to show you around my wonderful city.

A HUGE THANK YOU TO BOTH OF YOU.
