We are the masters of finding the best places to stay
We had originally planned to be in beach towns for the last several days, but decided to change our route due to the wildfires that caused so much destruction to several of the little towns. But today we headed for Mossel Bay and found a gorgeous neighborhood called Dana Bay (or Danabaai as all the road signs said). The Lilies and Leopards Bed & Breakfast has the most beautiful view of the ocean and our room has an excellent balcony and it's own little kitchen. We immediately went to a grocery store and got stuff for spaghetti. We were determined to sit on our balcony and have dinner, even though it is freezing here! Sorry Bakersfield, I know you are all melting right now!
Our fabulous host here arranged a spot for us tomorrow on a whale watching boat, even though the whales have apparently been pretty scarce so far. This is normally the start of whale season and this is THE place to be to see a bunch of different species, but I guess they are late coming in this year. I'm looking forward to it, but I think I might need to wear everything I have in my suitcase!
