We headed to Cape Town for the first week of Spring Break. It was during this week that Jeff’s job was going to be decided upon, and we wanted to be in a location with good cell reception and reliable internet, just in case they wanted to get ahold of us… besides which, we LOVE us some Cape Town! We, of course, ate too much, did some new things, and revisited our old favorites.
We ate delicious burgers, samosas and exploding bubble tea smoothies at the food “barn” near the Waterfront. Always delicious! We also saw Zootopia (AKA Zootropolis, in SA) and enjoyed the view from our apartment!
We enjoyed a mini Easter Egg hunt and Easter “baskets” on the entry table. I was so excited to find Cadbury Eggs… that is all I wanted for Easter!
We headed out to Somerset West to visit the Cheetah Experience. We got to learn about what they do to prevent hunting of cheetahs, there is this cool program where they give farmers a certain breed of dog that protects the livestock and is big enough that the cheetah won’t bother it. We got to pet the grown cheetahs- so very cool!
The next day we visited Bo-Kaap, the Cape Malay houses. There are about 3 streets of colorful houses and buildings. Very cute!
We stopped by Camp’s Bay to let the girls play in the sand, and it was the perfect day for it, the week was cloudy and had some drizzles, but this day was sunny and perfect, the beach was PACKED!
Our next stop was Kirstenbosch Gardens. The girls climbed on their favorite tree, ran around the heels, and played on the big grassy knolls for the day!
Oh, this is getting long! To be continued…
