On the first proper day of our holiday, we spent the morning at the Two Oceans race expo getting our numbers, and then we went for a little drive.

Our first stop was Hout Bay. It’s such a special little town, and I just love the harbour area. It’s the perfect place to find fresh fish and chips for a simple lunch… and a bit of a wander around the fishing boats…

… before heading off to drive Chapman’s Peak drive. I love going there! We didn’t stop at the usual spot though, so the view wasn’t as great as it normally is.

Our next stop was Misty Cliffs, and the kids had to dip their toes in the icy ocean and to take a few photos along the beach 🙂

Thanks to Hilary for this photo… I was determined to get at least one family photo this holiday 🙂

Before heading back to Muizenberg for a proper swim… in the icy ocean! The kids were red like tomatoes when they came out the sea.
