The Great Travel Adventure: Western Cape 2 (Part 1 of Our Cape Point Road Trip)

Well, I hope you enjoyed last week’s photos; the first instalment of our wonderful, life-changing holiday. This week is part 1 of a fantastic road trip we took with Ray’s daughter Connie and her partner Alex. It was definitely one of the highlights of our stay in South Africa! These photos will lead us up to Cape Point.

Don’t forget to check out my fiancé Ray’s website:

Baden Powell Drive runs along False Bay up to Muizenberg; we stopped here to take in the beautiful sea air. The town of Muizenberg is in the distance.
I just loved these little beach huts! This row was in St. James, one of the towns along our drive.

Along Main Rd in St James; how fabulous to have that view from your back room! And the ocean is the view from your front room 🙂
Fishing boats moored in Kalk Bay
The harbour entrance light at Kalk Bay.
Reflections of a fishing boat…
We bought some nice bread from here 🙂
This is a statue of Just Nuisance; he was the only dog ever to be officially enlisted in the Royal Navy. He was a Great Dane who between 1939 and 1944 served at HMS Afrikander, a Royal Navy shore establishment in Simon’s Town, South Africa. He died in 1944 at the age of seven years and was buried with full military honours. For more (very) interesting information on Just Nuisance, go to
A yacht in the harbour of Simon’s Town.
Walking along the pier in Simon’s Town, back towards the car; my sweetie in the distance on the right and Connie and Alex hand in hand a bit to the left of Ray. Look at those fabulous mountains; they were everywhere!

Tune in next week for Cape Point itself! See you then 🙂


The Great Travel Adventure: Western Cape 1

Hello there! We are back from our holidays and I have some photos to share with you. The following are of a visit through the Four Passes, which are Sir Lowry’s, Viljoen’s, Franschhoek and Helshoogte, stopping at Grabouw, Villiersdorp, Franschhoek and drove through Stellenbosch. 

Do have a look at my fiancé Ray’s website:

Just outside Grabouw on the way to Villiersdorp.
Viljoen’s Pass.
A little bit of Villiersdorp…
Stunning mountains everywhere!
A gorgeous little church in Villiersdorp ~ a lovely town where we enjoyed some lunch.
Loved the contrast here…
Theewaterskloof Dam.
We encountered a group of baboons as we drove through Franschhoek Pass; these two youngsters were playing on the cliff face of the mountain.
At Franschhoek ~ the Huguenot Memorial.
Also at the Huguenot Memorial in Franschhoek.


I hope you enjoyed the first instalment of our adventures abroad; many more to come! 🙂
