I’m exhausted after 3 very long days, hence no blog entries since Monday. First was a tour of the peninsula with French guests. They loved everything, said our beaches are wonderful with the mountains as a backdrop and far more interesting than in some countries where all the beaches look the same. It’s always interesting to hear the opinions of people who are well-travelled – no gushing and the appreciation is informed. They also ask very pointed, and educated, questions about this country and you have to be on top of your game, bitching about the ANC isn’t good enough.
It was frightening to hear what they had been warned about regarding South Africa. Aside from being told that 3 days is all you need in Cape Town, they had been warned to not venture out of their hotel without being accompanied. So they didn’t have enough time here and missed out on doing things they realised they would have liked to do.
They loved every meal we had together! They eat a lot of fish and especially like sushi so we gorged ourselves at the Two Oceans Restaurant at Cape Point. This restaurant was recently revamped and a sushi bar added so I decided to give it a try. The previous menu was too elaborate and pricey and more suited to an evening dining experience, rather than lunch. The new menu and service didn’t disappoint at all and I’ll definitely go there again.
As always, we stopped at Boulders to ogle the penguins. I’ve had first-hand experience cleaning and feeding these cute little waddlers so it always gives me a kick to see them. This crowd all look very busy.. some are still sitting on eggs and you can see the youngsters with their fluffy coats – there’s one looking straight at the camera, wassup, dude? He looks very well-fed, doesn’t he?
I’m quite pleased with the photos I took because the sun was already going down so there wasn’t much light, and camera was on auto as always.
