This old fellow is one of the resident tortoises at the Vineyard Hotel in Cape Town
...which has a stunning view from the front patio which is part of the original building built in 1800 ...
Wine estates in the Constantia Valley were another stop but being a Sunday some were closed like this one - Buitenverwachting ..
... and whilst in the Hermanus area we popped into the old farm building of the Hamilton Russell vineyards. Took Hubby's Mum for a change of scenery from the Old Aged Home where she now lives .. well into her 80's, she is looking well but getting frail
... where I could peep into an oak wine vat ..
Perfect setting for a snack lunch ... beautiful mountains and buskers' music!!
And finally .. from the window of our 'ordinary' aeroplane ... the gorgeous False Bay with part of Strand Beach and mountains passed Gordons Bay up the coast ... the coastline where my Dad's ashes are scattered ...
Spent a little time with my Mum .... she didn't know me this time :(
