Hermanus – 2013

4/8/2013

This morning we woke up, had a late brunch of eggs, bacon, cereal, crumpets, tea and hot chocolate. Then we decided to shower, pack up and head for a few more hours on the town.

I decided to come back for our bags because I refused to park with a car full of stuff. To be honest all I wanted to do was go back to that 2nd hand book shop. So we drove into town and then we headed off to see if we can try and spot some whales (which we did). So then Tam and I headed off to the 2nd hand book store for a while and made a place where we would meet Simone and Robyn up later. Ok we did miss some awesome whale scenes. Unfortunately my camera decided to make the battery not last. So we didn’t manage to take any and my phone camera doesn’t zoom in or out:(

So we fooled around a bit as you can see.

Then after a couple of hours we headed back to the car, drove to the cottage and packed the car. I wanted to be on the road by 2.30 pm and we managed to leave a bit early so we made good time. On the way home we took the coastal road which was beautiful! Even though it is a bit longer than the pass. Had a late lunch stop in Strand, because after the driving I need coffee. So this one BP had a Seattle coffee place. So stopped there. I love driving but it is very tiring though.

So we got back around 5:00 pm and I dropped everyone off at the selected homes and headed back home myself to unpack and get get ready for my dinner out.

So I am hoping there will be another adventure to blog about. So watch this space!

This morning after picking up Tam and the twins we managed to hit the freeway at 10:00 am. Which was excellent timing. It was awesome driving on the freeway at 120 kilometers with music blaring! The next stop was a petrol garage for a Wimpy coffee (which was so needed).

Then after that back on the road to Hermanus we go. We entered Hermanus and drove to the place where we were staying which is about two roads down from the mountain. So after we settled in we decided to go and walk the town and find some lunch, have ice cream and raid the awesome 2nd handbook store. Then afterwards we went to drive to the main beach Grotto Beach (Where I spent most of my childhood).

Then once it started to get late in the afternoon we drove back and had tea and talked.Then I decided to climb the tree. I must admit I loved been with my friends but I did miss my boyfriend a lot.

We decided to go for a walk around the blocks and make sure we didn’t get lost in the process. ¬†After our walk around we came back and cooked supper which consisted of chicken burgers and salad. Mean while I managed to get the radio working but not the CD player section.

Afterwards we played RummiKub and I did win twice. While we had pudding of custard, dark chocolate, popcorn and tin fruit. We had too much sugar. But when ones friends start singing “Bob the Builder” then there are problems. It was really funny though.

It was so weird been back here. Had so many memories here in Hermanus with the Bendens when we were children. Going to see if I can go and find there old house tomorrow.
