I spent 2 days with my sister and brother-in-law, also taking the opportunity of spending time walking around in Kirstenbosch Gardens, one of my most favourite places to visit in the Cape.

 

Both my parents loved visiting the gardens while they were alive. The peace and serenity of the place, coupled with the sheer beauty, has ensured the feeling is very mutual.

 

The first area in the gardens I head to is always where the sunbirds are to be found;  although there were not as many as usual this time round. Loads of bees and other winged things though.

My sister had work to do, so while my brother-in-law and I played with our cameras, she worked. So dedicated!

It was great to spend the time with them, albeit so short. All too soon it was time to pack up and head to my next destination, the home of long-time friends.

 

I only spent a night and a day there though, so no photos were taken, but another bed and view was added to the ever growing list!

 

Before I knew it, it was time to head back to JHB. There was more visiting to be done and another seaside holiday with my eldest daughter and her family.

Which way is up?! The perfectly still water in the pond made for ideal reflections!
