Gardens and the Garden Route

So I tried to post a blog yesterday but something went wrong. Here is the brief synopsis (mostly pictures) of our last few days.

King proteus. National flower of South Africa. Saw this and many others at the kirstenbosch gardens.


Hout's bay

Good to know!




Chambers peak drive

Very nice views


Ostriches, baboons and antelope were seen at the cape of good hope


This guy stole someone's chocolate cake and seems to be enjoying it.


Indian ocean left, Atlantic to the right

Seems like a nice spot for a beer….

On second thought it may be a bit windy.

Penguin colony at boulder beach…


Baby penguins


Decided to drive East along the garden route. Saw lots of beautiful country.

Very different scenery…beautiful coastline and farmland within 30 minutes drive.


If you are ever in Knysna..stay here! Unbelievable!!


The view from our deck!

We have had a full last couple of days but hopefully we can get something posted before we leave for safari!
