|View from our cottage at Paternoster|
We started off with a few days in Cape Town and stayed at my son's flat at Green Point, which was central enough for us to walk around and visit the Waterfront, Green Point Gardens and do some shopping.
We took a day drive to Stellenbosh, Gordon's Bay and Franschoek where we had lunch. Love that place, and the food - spoilt for choice of amazing places to eat. Photo's of those places to follow.

turquoise gumboots. She is at the back of picture,
hitching her dress high...
I doubt that I will ever witness anything like this again in my life!
On Sunday, my birthday, we went to this amazing restaurant for lunch. The menu was so good it was hard to choose, but we did it justice and I once again enjoyed the amazing fresh seafood on offer.
|Flowers at the West Coast National Park|
On the Monday, we motored back to Cape Town with a stop at the West Coast National Park. We were so lucky to see the beautiful flowers this area is so famous for, as it only lasts a week or two every year!
It looks like a carpet of colour and something I will always remember.

How awesome is this!

Now perhaps, you can understand why I said it was the most awesome holiday ever. We spent it with those we love, in a little piece of God's magnificence, blessed with awesome weather, and I was spoilt rotten.
How does one thank your family for all they did to make this so special for me?
Could there be more happiness in store for me after this amazing experience? Only God knows.....
