Kayaking on Zandvlei

This time of year is amazing for going out on the Vlei for a paddle in my Kayak. It is warming up, and you still get a lot of wind-free afternoons to enjoy the water.

And for the first time in years, the Flamingo’s are back. They are in just about every river and lake in Cape Town at the moment; it is great.

Cheatah Experience

A couple of weeks ago we were in Bloemfontein for Lois to receive her Women in Disability award. While we were there we had time to visit the Cheetah Experience, a cheetah conservation centre.

It was an amazing visit, especially because we ended up going on a private tour and were allowed to visit and interact with both the adult cats as well as the babies.

They are doing amazing work, and if you are in Bloemfontein I highly recommend a visit to the Cheetah Experience.

You can’t visit Cape Town without a visit to the Penguins in Simon’s Town. The tourists live them, but I also has a friend whose house is in the beach and they regularily have penguins vising their house and nesting in their lounge!
They are really cute, but they stink as well!

Happy Birthday to Emily

Happy Birthday Emily, hope you have a wonderful 2nd birthday. You are a very cute monster dog, but no longer a puppy, so please continue to behave a little better.
