Out of Africa - Part Four

Even the best things have to come to an end, and it was with emotional farewells that we said goodbye to each other in Cape Town today. A short trip to Hout Bay and the trip was over by 12.00.

When you initially plan something like this there are so many uncertainties that can get in the way that it is often impossible to exceed every expectation, but I can honestly say - and I hope (and know) I'm not the exception - that our journey from Jo'burg to the Cape has proved memorable for each of us. To throw 8 people together for nearly three weeks, to be travelling, cooking, eating and sleeping in close proximity has the potential for a make or break situation, but we have all got on really well and I'm sure we will go our separate ways with many memories that will last with us forever. It is maybe too soon for reflection and I will not go into the highlights at present but will continue to make the most of the last few days in South Africa before our flight on Friday night and back to the cold of Perth and Christmas.

We have moved on to Pringle Bay and Maureen's (my sister) holiday home. As if we have not travelled enough, we a have planned a trip to De Hoop Nature Reserve tomorrow where we will stay overnight. Should be good for more pics, more bird and animal spotting and hopefully a couple more days of Vitamin D
