We had a glorious day of sunshine and after weeks indoors we had to be out and about…

My kids are dying to go back with their sketchbooks. Have to say a trip to the museum was good fun… an easy and interesting outing. Well worth a trip into the city!!! Now that everyone has a pamphlet and knows that there are more than a few museums to visit, I am thinking we will be bringing you a series on Cape Town’s museums…
