Once again we packed up and traveled to Cape town spending an overnight on the game farm and B&B- Lemoenfontein. The house was originally used by an English gentleman who would visit South Africa in the early part of the 1900 with his friends and go hunting.

On the way to Cape Town we also stopped of at Matjiesfontein where we enjoyed tea listening to some singing and piano playing. Again this hotel and surrounding houses have many stories to tell.

The bear show was held on the well known wine farm Buitenverwachting and having a windy overcast start to the day the sun eventually came out and we had a glorious busy day. I did was kept busy at my own table and did not see much of the rest of the show and got Andrew to go and take some pictures .
I was under the Dalden awning and had my daughter in law helping me. This show is growing each year and is enjoyed by both participants and visitors. Lunchtime sees visitors with picnic baskets, good SA wine enjoying their lunch. Children have a host of things to play on and are of course delighted at seeing all the teddy bears. I look forward to doing this show again next year.
