Secluded Beach at the Cape + Wine Country (Franschhoek)

I forgot to detail in my last post the last quick stop we made in Table Mountain National Park before we left - a dreamy, beautiful, and, but for some smoking (augh!) fishermen, nearly isolated stretch of beach.
 We had to get to our hotel in wine country but we couldn't resist making one last stop.
 The scene was so pristine, so utterly unpolluted!

 The water was freeeeeezing.

Finally tearing ourselves away from the Cape, we headed through some charming, anachronistic little one-lane beach towns on the southern shore (read: major traffic),
which also took us through some very narrow lanes surrounded by sand dunes on both sides,

 before finally getting into Stellenbosch and Franschhoek.

The winelands are beautiful!  Just stunning.

Here, pictures of our resort, La Petite Dauphine, where we were surrounded by grape vines nestled at the foot of the Franschhoek mountains.

 All around us - grapes and mountains!

Oh, and flowers.  Beautiful flowers everywhere.
