I met the Ray, Judy, Willy and Warren at the V&A Waterfront Hotel and after doing a couple of chores in the Waterfront we set off on a Cape Peninsula Tour. As the weather was perect we started our journey by ascending Table Mountain where the following three photos were taken.

We ascended "The Hill" at Fish Hoek and went to my secret spot so as to see whales from atop of the suburb. Great viewing.

 

We moved on to a rather windy Boulders Beach penguin colony where I took this photo of Warren and Willy.

 

We stopped in at the Seaforth Restaurant for a quick bite to eat.

 

On Cape Point I took this photo of Warren at The Dias Cross as he had family links to the great mariner Bartholomeus Dias.

 

The following 4 pictures were taken at Cape Pont and YES IT WAS WINDY! JJ

 

 

Willy making sure that the lighthouse stays up at Cape Point.  JJ

 

We stopped in at "The Statues" on our way to Kommetjie.

We ended off our tour by doing "sabriage" on a great bottle of champagne at sunset near to Camps Bay

 


This foursome was a fun group to travel with . Simply look at all the smileys as well as smiling faces on this page and they tell a story. We had a great time together and I enjoyed touring Judy, Ray, Willy and Warren immensely. I also think that they enjoyed the tour and got a good look in as to all the wonderful beauty of Cape Town.

 

THANKS YOU  THANK YOU
Judy, Ray, Willy and Warren.

Dear Selwyn,

Everything is OK at our condo in Alexandria, VA . The town did flood at 
12-15 feet over flood stage. All the shops are closed trying to clean up. 

Our cottage that is 2 1/2 hours south of here in the Kilmarnock area survived 
any damage but our housing area was hit very hard. We sit between 2 rivers, 
Rappahanack & the Potomac & and face the Chesapeake Bay. Our area was hit from three different directions. No one was hurt but a lot of damage to houses & much clean up.

We got home Friday evening & headed to cottage on Sat. AM. Water was out till 
Sun. and electric came back on Sun. Still have some 200,000 people without 
power and many without water.

Thank you for sharing your Cape Town with us. It was such a great 
experience! The pictures on your web site are great. Please use us as references if someone ask. I will forward some pics soon as  things get back to normal.

Sincerely,

Ray & Judy Roper
