These are my ten favorite pics with me! Don't worry, it's my one big pic entry. I'll mostly be posting a few more individual pics as I write up the associated stories.

At Noble (Peace Prize) Square at the V&A Waterfront in Capetown, South Africa.
Winelands Winelands

We made a trip up to the winelands region near Cape Town and had some really bad wine at a few places. Most of the winery places just opened up a few years ago, and this was some of their first batches, which also had
been beset with problems with a bad grape year due to some misc. problems drought/grape plague. It was very pretty, but I didn't buy any wine.

Yep. Everyone loves penguins. I regret that I didn't do a penguin stance (feet together and hands out by the waist.)

Awesome pictures, it looks so beautiful there. I love the ones of Table mountain, and the penguins are just too cute! Hope you had a great time there, although I bet it feels good to be home.

it's bizzare to think of PENGUINS in AFRICA...

Confused Kathleen

of course, i know enough about science to know that they do live in more temperate zones, it's just... bizarre, is all...

He always seems shorter than that.

And I know he's a person of color, but I've never seen a GREEN person.
