Brunch, Penguins and another Braai

We woke on Saturday morning at Leonie and Radie's house after a great evening.

Really lovely people. In fact to save time and space I'd just like to say what lovely people all of Elaine's friends are, they have all made me feel totally at home and it is easy to see why Elaine misses them all so much when she is in the UK. Baie dankie almal.

We got up, showered, had breakfast and set off to the centre of Cape Town to meet Nadia for brunch at the V&A Waterfront. A full South African (same as English) breakfast in the shadow of table mountain helped to set us up for a trip out to Simonstown and the Penguin colony at Boulders Beach.

It was great to be within touching distance of so many of these funny sea birds and especially entertaining for Nadia and I when one of them gave Elaine a little peck when she got her hand a little too close! Much laughter but no injuries to report. Again there are plenty of photos that we can't share at the moment but will very soon! (Update 23rd January 2009 - Here you go!)

After a relaxing day it was time to say goodbye to Nadia and head off for yet another braai, this time in Durbanville just outside Cape Town with Larah, Johan, Shanien and JF.

The snoek, accompanying food, company and wine were again excellent and it was two very happy but tired campers who arrived back in Stellenbosch in the early hours of the morning.
