This post might be a little longer than usual, but there were so many interesting things we learned, I really wanted to include as much as I could. So just a warning… Soldier on dear readers!
We left Jeffrey’s Bay very early in the morning to catch our 7am flight. We left from Port Elizabeth, SA into Durban, SA and that finally brought us into Harare, Zimbabwe! Why are we coming to Zimbabwe? A little background…
Now we were at a very exciting part of our trip. Jeffrey’s bay! For many surfers (speaking of John here, as my surfing prowess wouldn’t even get me out of the bunny surf) this is Mecca! On a good day, the waves form perfect tubes that you ride so far, once you finally bail off the wave, your walk back to where you started from is 15-20 minutes! But first we had to get there… via The Garden Route.
What a dreary day we woke up to! But the heavy nimbus clouds played a lovely balance for the gorgeous Muizenburg Beach.
We woke up early in the morning, as we had… more sightseeing! But today was a little different, and had a little something extra I was VERY excited about! I’ll get to all the tasty details on that… but first, Table Mountain!
Isn’t this place gorgeous?!
I was so looking forward to hanging out with the penguins. We went to Boulders Beach, where the little guys call their home. While there was a place you could get in the ocean and swim, all the penguins were hanging out here, where they are cordoned off from the humans (and besides, it’s winter! Only crazy Scandinavians were frolicking in the waves.)
We just couldn’t stop taking pictures!
We hiked up to Lion’s Head mountain! It was right next to one of the wonders of the world, Table Mountain. (More on that later.) blah, blah, words, narrative… Look at these pictures!
