Sunday Drive to Hermanus (2015-08-02) Photo Gallery 10 AUG 2015

Two weeks later and we’re back in Hermanus once more! Faced with the possibility of staying at home and doing nothing, I suggested that we head out for a nice scenic Sunday afternoon drive to Hermanus, for the kids to play and for Chantelle to spot whales (and for me to get out of the house!).

Happily, Chantelle agreed that this was a great idea!

This time around we took the proper tourist route to Hermanus, taking the coastal road all the way until we hit this popular whale watching seaside town.

The weather was great, the drive perfect, and quite frankly, it was a brilliant start to our Sunday out and about as a family.

We enjoyed a leisurely stroll along the excellently maintained and signposted Cliff Path, tried our luck at spotting whales in the bay (no such luck), and let the kids run amok in the public playground area while we cheerfully bobbed our heads to the marimba players’ merry tunes.

For lunch we once again found ourselves at the Europa Coffee Shop, where the girls had a particular ball thanks to our waitress continually dropping things off for them to play with at the table!

As you can see from the pictures, in the end it was a Sunday rather well spent (apart from the not seeing whales part of course!).

(P.S. Chantelle was actually quite disappointed that we didn’t get to spot any whales in the bay on the day – as she puts it, what’s the point of coming to Hermanus if you’re not going to spot any whales! :P)
