Final Four Days

Day 18, a tour of Cape Town, and to the Malay Quarter, S.A. Museum and Kirstenbosch Botanical  Gardens.  Afternoon of leisure to shop at the Victoria & Alfred waterfront area. 

A full day tour on day nineteen to Cape Point, with a boat ride to Seal Island and the Cape of Good Hope, where we will see seals and penguins.  Hoping to see the S.A. national flower, King Protea,  in bloom which I understand is abundant in this area.
Tonight is our farewell dinner, where we formally say goodbye to all of our travel companions.

Day twenty, A wine land tour through scenery of vineyards, oak shaded rivers and Dutch colonial homes.  Wine tasting in one of the cellars and lunch at a private estate.  Then on to Stellenbosch to the Village Museum.  We then transfer to the airport for our flights home.

Day twenty one, is a long day, flight from Cape Town, to Jo'berg, then on to London, UK, for a connecting flight for me to Toronto, and then a two hour drive to my home. 

This will be a trip that I have wanted to do for many years, and never thought it would ever happen,  but here I am getting ready for a trip of a lifetime.  It's going to be great to have the opportunity to do all of this, but also so nice to get home again and see my family.

Ummmmm....... where will I go in 2013.   Oh no !!   there is that "13" again, maybe I should stay home.

Have a great day.
