Day 17 – Goodbye Fellow Texans

A day at Camps Beach

sunny 70 °F

Well, time flies, as this is Phil and Kate’s last day, even though they do not leave until late tonight. We have plans to meet Jim and his wife for lunch at Camps Bay. It is an extremely nice day – almost hot even as I finally wear my shorts out for the day. Gwen is still suffering from a cold or sinus issue, so we get some things from the Pharma for her.
Jim, Ruen and their 9 month old daughter, Maya, come by the house to caravan to the restaurant. The Ocean Blue restaurant was very nice with very good food including good chips (fries) – most fries are undercooked here. The seafood meals were quite impressive.
Then we took a stroll along the beach in the gorgeous weather. Plenty of swimmers and sun bathers enjoying the day. Even in shorts and a short sleeve Germany shirt, at some point I sweated a little. Phil even worked in a soccer kick by returning a ball to a group of kids playing on the beach (I think he’s ready to come out of retirement – he just hasn’t realized yet).
We headed back to Cape Town to catch the Germany vs. England game – it was a great game as we thoroughly enjoyed cheering on Germany. We regretted that we did not stay in Camps Bay for the game though, as we almost stayed at a restaurant that offered a free beer for each Germany goal – schade.
Off to the airport to take Phil and Kate back for their flight.

Quip the day: Hope Gwen can handle a few days along with me :)
