I met Judith and Paul at the Table Bay Hotel. After becoming acquainted we set off on a Cape Peninsula tour.

We travelled via the southern suburbs of Cape Town to Muizenberg, Kalk Bay, Fish Hoek and eventually Simonstown where we met up with Just Nuisance as can be seen from the picture below.



At the penguin colony on Boulders Beach just outside Simonstown.

Shopping for postcards at Cape Point.


We travelled back to Cape Town via the wonderfully scenic drive while passing  the Cape of Good Hope, Scarborough, Kommetjie, Chapmans Peak, Hout Bay, Llandudno and Camps Bay



Day 2

A cultural tour of the Western Cape


We started our day with a visit to the Afrikaans language monument where we went through the history of South Africa in preparation for our visit to the township of Kayamandi.


We joined Lily at her home for a wonderful traditional Xhosa lunch

After our visit to Kayamandi we returned to Cape Town where I dropped Judith and Paul off at the home of local Capetonian friends of theirs.



Travelling with Judith and Paul was a wonderful and most enjoyable experience for me as they both brought so much of their own thoughts to the discussions we had while travelling through Cape Town and its surrounds. Much was shared and gained by all. This certainly enhanced our journey together resulting in our tour being an enjoyable one for me while I gained the impression that Judith and Paul felt similarly.
