Early start from CT to Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens then on the road to Hermanus along the coast, via baboons and penguins.
Beautiful plants at the gardens and a picnic on the way followed by torrential thunderstorms in Hermanus, but not before a beachfront stroll and a spot of whale watching.
Caption of the pic to the left here: The Boy: Helen, Helen, I'm going to climb rocks and then you can take a picture of me.
Me: Yes dear...
Dinner in the oldest building in the village now the smallest pub in South Africa. Amazing food underscored by a symphony of pelting rain on the corrugated iron lean-to roof that made conversation almost impossible!
