Therefore, for Freedom Day (a public holiday commemorating the first democratic elections in South Africa 21 years ago), we booked a tour with a local chap who took us (and a group of 5 young people from the US, the UK, and Zimbabwe all celebrating a friend's birthday together) around the Cape. He is known for being quite funny, and he made for an enjoyable tour around the area.
|Hout Bay + Fred and Matthew
|Smitswinkel Bay, a lovely little community that is only accessible either by boat or by a 4km hike.
|Smitswinkel Bay + Matthew
|Fred enjoys the view from the combi
|Not Southernmost on the continent?
|Panorama of False Bay
|An absolutely beautiful day of it
|We managed to rest control of the sign from the usual tourbus loads lining up to take pictures with this.
|The light house of Cape Point.
|Clouds jetting over the mountain tops
|My sweetie and me.
After that tour, we went back to Fred's place to pack him out and over to mine. Then we had to pack up his suitcase to get him ready to go back to the States the following day.
I miss having him here.
