SA Trip: Randoms

Here are a few random shots from the first week of our trip:

And then Mum arrived!!

And here's our first sighting of an African animal...gross!

SA Trip: Organic Farm

Another day while in Somerset West, we visited a beautiful organic farm and winery and ate lunch in their outdoor kitchen. Such fun!

South Africa: Peacocks and Fountains

I hereby resume my posting about our South Africa trip :) Due to severe morning sickness, hospital visits and just trying to make it through each day (more on that later), I haven't kept up with the blog this past 6 weeks or so. But, better late than never, so here goes.

The last post I did was our week in Somerset West, staying at a friend's house and visiting nearby places. Our friends live in a beautiful golf course community that also has its own hotel. So one evening we ventured out for a walk and dinner at the pub.

We ran into a group of peacocks...I've never seen so many all at once!

Jack was eager to have a swim
