In the morning we visited the Rondevlei Nature Reserve on the outskirts of Cape Town (see bird blog )
Jasmin, a member of a visiting school party, who insisted on having his picture taken.
We then headed down to Fish Hoek on the coast but got caught in a downpour (water shortage?) so didn’t stop.
We tried returning to Camps Bay via Chapman’s Peak but got lost and returned via Constantia.
In the afternoon we headed over to Barry’s school (SACS) where we saw their very spacious and pleasant accommodation in the boarding house. Gregory and Pierre were very keen to show us their rooms and we were very pleased to see all the Bristol links around the house.
Whilst the braai was firing up we wandered over to see an exciting end to the cricket match between SACS and Bishop’s (Alex’s school) and even had chance of a bit of bird spotting with Sacred ibis and Hadada ibis.
We watched the amazing performance by Scotland in defeating England at Murrayfield but this did not spoil our day nor (as Barry commented about South Africa’s defeat by India in the cricket) change my life.
