I'm still here

Goodness gracious.... almost a year already

The year has flown past, hasn't it?
I'm still thinking I did that road trip the other day.

So, not much has happened in my life, but I had a rare opportunity to visit the fashion collection archive at the Social History Centre in Cape Town.

Apart form the fact that it is housed in a beautiful building

The oldest clothes are from the 1700s and we had the rare privilege to see one up close and personal, including some undergarments and shoes.
the corsetry is from the early 1900's, since the corset of the pink dress was worked into the actual garment and not a separate piece.

so, without further ado:

The second epic journey - Part 13

A BIG breakfast was served the next day.
We then packed and headed out to McGregor. A the tourist info we got a map, but many things on there were closed or by appointment only. Not sure when their season is. We wandered through the town. We could have done a hike, but after the last one, we did not feel like it.

Just a few improssions:

We then drove back to CT.

Thursday: we looked at the weather - cool and a bit windy, a perfect day for climbing Table Mountain. And it was perfect.

On Friday we met Mel in Stellenbosch to do a quick tour. It ended with beer tasting :)

On Saturday I altered a T-shirt for Katja and in the evening we had dinner at Addis in Cape. YUM

We spent Sunday around the house, had high tea at the Mount Nelson hotel

and in the afternoon visited the Hout Bay market. Beautiful place. I started work again on Monday, and Katja had to do a few things by herself, like Robben Island....

A dinner with my brother was still on the cards, as well as taking some more postcard pictures of Table Mountain. And so, on a blustery late afternoon, we took these.

Total km of the trip itself: 4358. With the last bit of driving in CT, I think we just-just managed to hit 5000km. A few less than the last one, but just as epic :)
