Betty's bayJuly 5 in South Africa
Today we packed up the apartment in the Strand and loaded everything into the ute. It was a tight squeeze to fit everything in but we managed. Natasha and I met with Jodine for waffles after we packed our bags while Charl attended a meeting.
We left the Strand around 12.30 heading south east along to coast. We were lucky enough to spot a whale as we drove along the coast, it is currently breeding season but this was the first we have seen.
Betty's bay is known for a penguin sanctuary which occupies an old whaling port which no longer stands. There is many penguins out today which was nice to see. It is very windy here but that is because we are right on the beach front (with penguins on our door step).
We are staying in a very nice holiday house owned by one of Charl's work colleagues. It is a beautiful big house. We had a braai (wood BBQ) for dinner of lamb chops, boerewors (beef sausages) and toasted sandwiches with salad and mash potatoes.Read more
