So, this is Dean at the keyboard, so the recap will probably not be as detailed or well written.
We got up the day before yesterday and drove ourselves out to the wine country, Stellenbach, to be exact. We were booked for a 10:30 tour and had left ourselves plenty of time to get there. All was looking well until we actually got to town and we were driving in circles trying to find the Stumble Inn. After some local help we found it, just in time to catch our tour.
We boarded a small mini bus with about ten other folks in our van and ten more in another van. We drove on a tour of four wineries and had lunch in between the first and last two. The wines were wonderful a the scenery was amazing. They were similar to California vineyards. It is winter, so there were not any grapes growing or being harvested. We were feeling a little tipsy from the first winery and they gave us really large samples. We got five samples at each winery. We had a great lunch on a terrace overlooking a beautiful mountain and the vineyards. I was so glad that I didn't have to be driving or I wouldn't have been able to drink at all. Also had cheese tastings at one and I specifically remember one blue cheese that was out of this world. At the last winery we saw a rainbow to cap off our day....
Back to the hotel where we had to take a quick cat nap and then got up to hit a place for dinner. We had pizza. Ana scraped the toppings off her's and just ate those. Went back to go to bed. We still haven't been sleeping quite on the right schedule yet and so both tossed and turned a while before falling asleep.
The whine is since Ana already typed up this day and our last day in Cape Town, but it died on her so it got lost.
Cheers for now.
