Leaving Cape Town...

Well, we have been here for 4 weeks and it is time to move on. We have really enjoyed ourselves and have been absolute Tourists.... We have walked on Table Mountain, visited Robben Island to see where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 27 years, stopped at Simon's Town to see the African Penguin colonies at Boulders Bay, driven over to Cape Point to see what the Cape of Good Hope actually looked like (as it was too misty to make much out when we went round by Sea) and played Golf at Mowbray Golf Course which is one of the oldest courses in South Africa.
We also managed to find time to spend a week staying on a Vinyard about 2 hours drive away for a short holiday where we tasted much Wine, went Horse riding and played a couple more Golf Courses.
This was all done amid numerous boat jobs including hauling out and antifouling plus fitting a new Genoa and replacing many bits of string (after nearly 50,000 miles, some of our ropes were looking a bit sad) !!! Also, Roger had to fix the Toilet (twice)........
