I met Joe and Barbara at the Cape Grace Hotel and as the weather was not favourable for a Peninsula tour we decided to travel to the winelands and Kayamandi for the day

After our visit to Seidelberg we traveled to Stellenbosch where we did a short tour of the b\village as well as had a great lunch at the Tastebud restaurant. After lunch we moved on to the township of Kayamandi

Cape Peninsula


We started our day by visiting Tribal Trends in the city centre


We also visited the shop Imagenius


We drove to the Southern Suburbs passing Muizenberg along the way. 
On arrival in Kalk Bay we visited the Potters Shop where Barbara had a great time.


After visiting the Potters Way we stopped in at the hidden away Cest La Vie coffee shop in Kalk Bay for a wonderful light lunch of sandwiches and coffee.

We arrived in Sea Point where we ended our day by going to the Ocean Basket Restaurant for a fabulous fish dinner

Absolutely brilliant. That's the best way to describe what it was like to travel with Barbara and Joe. They were both great fun to travel with and together we had two absolutely fantastic days travelling around Cape Town and its surrounds. I gained lots from Joe and Barbara and I can but only hope that they felt likewise. In summary two fabulous unforgettable days.
