Well, we had a wonderful day yesterday! It was Suzelle's 8th birthday and she asked that we go picnic at the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens. We left at 09h00 and only came back at 20hoo. It was one of those perfect Cape Town days that can not be beaten by being anywhere else in the world! My friend Liezel and her family, husband Danie, Mieke and Daniel and my friend Elnari and her daughter Janneke joined us. The gardens were beautiful and full of small birds including Egiptian goslings, guneafowl chicks and we also saw some turtles! On the one photo Suzelle is looking into the pond where they were!
We left the botanical gardens at 15h30, but then decided to come home via Hout Bay. Once there we stopped and went for a walk on the beach and then Elnari offered to buy us 'slap chips' for supper. We had it at Fish on the Rocks in Hout Bay's harbour area! Washing it down with ice cream of course!
After this we took the beach road home passing Llundudno, Camps Bay, Sea Point and then past the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront before getting on to the N1. After passing the waterfront, Luzaan (very sleepily) asked where we were going next and on my answer that we are going home, said that she did not want to go home! Proof of a really lovely day!
