Geoff Brock & Bruce Gamble

Cape Town (1)

We flew from London on a British Airways jumbo to Cape Town. It was a good flight, and we enjoyed the new flat bed seats for the first time, which meant we actually managed to sleep for a few hours, so the journey passed quickly. Whether this was due to the beds or the wine that was served with the dinner, we shall never know.
We hired a car and drove to Bruce's old school friend Graham, with whom we were staying.


He has a lovely house, full of antiques and with a brand-new pool in the garden which Geoff tried later that afternoon.
That afternoon, we drove down to the Waterfront to wander around this beautiful and vibrant area, and have yet more photographs of us and Table Mountain.
That evening, Graham had booked us into the restaurant at Constantia Uitsig for our evening meal. The food was very good indeed.
The following morning, we managed to find room for the splendid breakfast which Graham served us on the stoep.

We then drove to Franschoek, where we wandered around the antique shops and visited the Hugenot memorial.

Graham had booked lunch at La Petite Ferme - an excellent restaurant where we had the best seats on the verandah. The views were spectacular.
We were joined for coffee by the adjoining vineyard's resident cat
