We arrived in Hermanus from the bush by way of Cape Town. Hermanus is a small beach town about an hour South East of Cape Town. We stayed for a couple of nights at Birkenhead House a related property to Royal Malewane.

Finally starting to wear a bit more “girlie clothes.” Definitely a Dress and White jeans type of place.

Birkenhead house is a beautiful home on the cliffs over-looking the water. Hermanus is most well known for its whale watching – and Birkenhead House is the perfect place to see the whales.


  Hermanus is a quieter town but has a few fun activities to do including shark diving, surfing, and hiking.

Clay and I took a beautiful hike along the cliff walk into town. Along the way we saw numerous whales and beautiful homes and gardens. We took a break and stopped for lunch at Rosi’s because Clay was dying for pizza;)

 All of our meals at Birkenhead House were had on a fantastic patio over looking the water. The food was delicious and the portion sizes were perfect.

On to our next city – Cape Town!!
