We landed early in Cape Town and were in Wellington in time for early morning coffee at The Perfect Place.
The town has had several names: ‘Limiet Valley’, ‘The Wagonmakers’ Valley’, ‘Val du Charron’, and finally, after 1840, ‘Wellington’ in memory of the Duke’s victory over Napoleon. It had been a 12-hour flight from the UK and we stretched our legs with a wander round the town.
Hugo’s Jam Factory stood in Bain Street, as did the Dietmann Piano Factory, but the buildings have now been converted into residential apartments.
I saw some curious succulents…
…And vibrant colours.
And then it was time to set off for Tulbagh, via Bain’s Kloof Pass.
