Hermanus, South Africa Break

It was the late of 2005 when my husband and I went to HERMANUS in South Africa (he was still my boyfriend back then), we both spent for about a week together and I stayed for another 3 weeks with our Filipina friend (who married to a South African guy), only to enjoy my 1 month visit visa to enter the country.

It was September, a season which you can experience watching huge whales!
The Hermanus Whale Festival normally takes over a 4 day period, the seaside village becomes a smorgasbord of music, theatre, arts and crafts. The southern right whales are the main attraction and come to the coastline to calve and nurse their babies.

This area is exactly where we watch massive whales, watching them playing.

Then we went on top of the mountain to see the beauty of the town. Indeed, it was a perfect day and truly a very beautiful place..

Flower Festival was one of the highlights in Hermanus during the time between September to October. Look at these 3 gorgeous flower species we saw there, these were only from among hundreds of them! Shame I didn't take more...

Hermanus lies along the shores of Waker Bay near the Southern most tip of Africa. The magnificent mountains of the Overberg towers over the town - home of the Southern Right Whale. The Brydel Whales can be found all year round. Whale enthusiasts and nature lovers from all over the world visit this place to enjoy these magnificent creatures playing and frolicking. This place is the best land based whale watching destination in the world and is known as the heart of the whale route.
