Swartland Wines and Olives, Cape of Good Hope and...

Two weekends ago we went to the Wine and Olive Festival which was held by Vineyards from the Swartland Area, we tasted lots of lovely wine - we still cannot get over the price of wine here - it is so very cheap - a bottle purchased at this festival was the equivalent of between $3 and $12NZD!  There was a "Steel Drum" Band, the sound that came from these was amazing!

There was lots of food from spit roast to cupcakes!  We met a couple of lovely people there who gave us lots of recommendations of places to go and check out...







One of these places was Steenberg Estate Vineyard and Restaurant, so we went there for lunch.  
They have in their bar area this amazing display

During the week it was boat decisions, then Friday was the Cape Town Boat Show.  

Saturday we headed off to the Cape of Good Hope



On the way back we stopped and there right beside us were two "Right Whales"! 
 The wash breaking here is the back of one of the Right Whales
On this photo you can see the fin
On this photo you can see the tail

Then this week we were back in the classroom.  We both completed our "Medical at Sea" course.
