Our wonderful holiday started in sunny Cape Town, well it was more like misty Cape Town, but it was still great to be home and even better was the fact that I was bringing my husband home.
We did all the usual sight-seeing stuff, including V&A waterfront; the Castle; Muizenburg; Robben Island, Camps Bay; Cable Car; Simonstown, Spier farm in Stellenbosch and even the Chart Farm. It was really great seeing my family and finally introducing Sean to them (face to face, rather than skype).
We even got the chance to join our friend Deon on his family farm close to Vredenburg for a spot of hunting, unfortunately it wasn’t quite hunting season yet but we did have a fantastic time with him and his family in a very old farm house (with the spiders).
Dad and Naomi were amazing and it was so lovely having them spend time with us, they rally made Sean feel welcome into the family and many a night was spent round the table playing rummi-cub and having long conversations. On one of our favourite days Naomi organised a trip from Cape Town city all the way to Simonstown on an old refurbished steam engine. It was really fantastic spending the day with my parents and viewing Cape Town from a different point of view. It was also really great to catch up with some old friends who I haven’t seen in ages!
