We also were excited that my parents where up for meeting us there.
After our arrival we walked from our guest house through the Company Gardens to the waterfront. While I argued with my bank's customer services reps back in the states that I wasn't a fraudster and it was really me trying to withdrawal rands - my parents took the kids on a Ferris Wheel over the harbor.

After a nice drive through wine estates we made our way to Hermanus and spent a couple days there enjoying the coast.

|Matthew got real close to his favorite animal - a cheetah, at one point|
they were even running back and forth along the fence together.

After our tour through the animal park we made our way to the caves. Opa decided to join Matthew and I on the adventure tour -- and boy was that an adventure. See the picture below -- we all had to sqeeezzzeee through that rock! I think Opa's ribs still hurt!
Our last stop before flying back was Knysna. We had fun here enjoying the scenery, walking along the lagoon, and fetching hermit crabs out of the water... it was hard to leave!
