We are off...

We are leaving for the fairest Cape this morning.  It is a lovely overcast day so traveling the 800km will be lovely.  I am so ready to have a break.  Whenever we plan to go away there is just so much to do at the Mission before we can leave...that I worked myself into a frenzy yesterday to get everything done and plan for any thing that might happen in our absence.  We have lots planned for the 10 days in the Cape.
  • My sister, Herlien is getting married on a wine estate on Sunday.
  • Catching up with my sister Ansie, who I haven't seen since February.  We will be staying with them in Somerset West.
  • I HAVE to visit Kirstenbosch.
  • I HAVE to meet some of my blogging buddies:)  Can't wait.
  • We want to drive the whole way from Cape Town along the coast to Gordons Bay and take lots of pics of the beautiful scenery.
  • DH and BIL will be going to the SA Open golf at Pearl Valley tomorrow.
  • We will be having our Christmas celebration at Ansie and Willie's house in Somerset West.
I will be taking my laptop with will be checking in on all of you and sporadically posting.
