Day 3

Stellenbosch and Hermanus


We started our day with a visit to the old and rustic (see the cobwebs in the window) Muratie winefarm with the specific aim to taste the Port on the farm


After our visit to Muratie we did a short car-tour of Stellenbosch


We stopped in at Mooiplaas Farm stall where Carol and Leo enjoyed J some witblits (whilte lightning)


We stopped to take this photo of Leo and Carol overviewing False Bay on our way to Hermanus


We bought delicious pancakes (pannekoeke) along the way


After leaving the town of Kleinmond I spotted these wonderful king proteas and got Carol to pose for a photo with them


While in Hermanus I snapped this photo of Leo while Carol was shopping.
Written on bench - The seat is reserved for tired husbands.


Unfortunately we only saw whales breaching from afar in the bay and in actual fact made no close-up sitings however the views and scenery were great as can be seen from the above picture and we thoroughly enjoyed our stop in Hermanus

We retuned to Cape Town via the Grabouw citrus farm route and after stopping in at peregrine Farm stall we travelled on to Cape Town where I said goodbye to Carol and Leo at the Victoria and Albert Waterfront.


The Westons were "my kind of people" and we clicked instantaneously after starting our travels. This resulted in a wonderful tour for me as a tourguide as I had so much in common with Carol and Leo. They simply went with the flow in all that we did and it seemed as if we clicked on all our ideas and thoughts. This in turn resulted in what I feel was a marvellous tour for us all.

Carol and Leo have a huge sense huge sense of social morality and I truly identified with this at all times.  For this reason our time together in Kayamandi especially was extra special. 

What a tour this was and I can but only hope that the Westons felt similarly.

G'Day Selwyn

Just a quick note as we only arrived home about an hour ago and the time
changes have worn my brain out a little We did enjoy he last safari camp as it was a very interactive animal experience with walks joined by a 6 month old Lion cub as well as other animals at times.

Will update once we are more able to function.

Thank you very much for allowing us to tour with you The insightful and at
times humbling places you took us to gave us many things to think about in
our own lives

I will be in touch soon and part with

"Go the Wallabies" ;-)

Be Well , Be Safe
