Our Week in Plettenberg Bay

With our line of work in the ministry we have to carefully plan our time away. Kobus and I always work ourselves into the ground the day before we leave. We have to make sure all the bases are covered before we go. We left on Saturday 27 September and decided to have a light lunch at Stormsriver Mouth. This is a photo of the river mouth.

Here you can see why it is called Stormsriver. Is it not beautiful.

Here I am standing on the main beach in Plettenberg Bay....the hotel where we have timeshare is in the background.These photos were taken from our room. As you can see the views are out of this world.

The little spot you see in the bay is a whale. Really!!!!

Here is a close up...see I never tell
Here is "Ocean Safaries" boat following a school of dolphins.
Drinking coffee and having breakfast.

On Wednesday the 1st October Ansie and Willie flew in from Cape Town to spend time with us. We had a ball....the men on the golf course and Ansie went sightseeing. Here we are a Birds of Eden...and look at the size of that parrot.
A Marmoset mommy feeding her baby on a wooden bench.
A toucan....what a beautiful bird.Before we go into the bird sanctuary we have to remove all jewellery as the birds will steal earrings out of your ears. This bird decided my sunglasses are shiny enough.
Here he is trying to get a stud out of my handbag...had to shoo him off....
This cheeky ringneck stole some food off Ansie's plate and then went for the food on her fork.

This one was a charmer that spoke sweet nothings into Ansie's ear.
Here the two of us are on our way to go Whale watching....oohhh so exciting and nervous...would we get sea sick?

The Southern Right whale is the most common whale seen in our waters. They come to Plettenberg Bay to mate and have their young. Here you see two whales.
Wow these creatures are massive.

Eating of the things we did most..except sleep of course. Here is Ansie and Willie.

My favourite sister and I.

Kobus and I.We really ate way to much and slept now we are ready to tackle the work again.
