Afterwards we will motor down to Mossel Bay where we will spent a night before heading on to ...

Also thought of all of the Wynne's back home who enjoy property and real estate and figured they may like to ...

I should mention that the journey back through the countryside outside of Cape Town was absolutely beautiful with huge, mountainous landscapes and rolling farmlands.
