Wednesday 25th May 2016...my last full day in South Africa!!!

Hard to believe I arrived on 28th March and now time to leave...I am sure in days to come I shall  tell you about me feelings for this country but it has been a wonderful time for me and I have to mention Sonja and Delwin they invited me into their home and lives without knowing me and treated me like I was the King of England thank you so much not only for the 7 days of animal spotting but also the route you designed for me to arrive in Cape Town.....the very slight fears I had of getting Malaria and being unsafe here were completely unfounded and all I found were kind, caring and lovely people!!!
I shall not forget the Victoria Falls ever!!!  I shall never look at, read about, watch on TV or anything remotely connected to Elephants without reliving my inter action with "MY" elephant..the Great white shark cage diving was a bit unnerving but nothing compares to the "thrill" of abseiling down Table Mountain!!!
So for my last day after doing the girls things, food and walks, I put on my new hiking shoes and set out for a beach walk..come along, no comments necessary enjoy the last walk with me!!!!






 Let me see if I can still use the knowledge that Delwin gave me about identifying tracks..
 I think this track is from a youngish handsome man in his early 60's with graying hair at the temples he is travelling in a left direction in his new New Balance comfy hiking shoes!!!!!  How did I do???

It was a great start to the day and as you can see just a glorious day..on the way home I stopped in town at the local Barber shop and got a good 60 Rand hair cut...what do you think??
 Came home and started my house hold chores and two hours later the house looked great, I did a load of laundry, cut the grass and packed up my stuff..Sue was due to arrive back around 6.30 pm....I spent the rest of the afternoon watching a thrilling tennis match from Paris!!!!
As I was waiting for Sue to come I received an e mail from her telling me that I could leave as she would would be a little while and to put the key outside...this is not the way I would have ended the house sit but that was her choice so I never got to see her to tell her about stuff and about the dogs being a lot of work.
I then left the house and drove to the great little apartment that I stayed in two weeks ago, it is very new and wonderfully laid out, the kind owners Mo and Elred invited into their home for tea and a chat, I enjoyed that thanks!!
Had a real nice shower and going to try and get an early night....
It will be a couple of days before I blog again.....
My itinerary is I leave Cape Town at 4pm tomorrow afternoon and 2 hours to J'Burg, with a 90 minute lay over and then an 8 hour flight to Dubai with a 2 hour lay over and then a 7 hour flight putting me in London at 12.30 pm on Friday afternoon where Janet and Malc are picking me up!!!!


Thanks South Africa!!!!
