Two Oceans Aquarium

In October 2016 we went to visit my sister in Stellenbosch for a long weekend.  We drove from Mossel Bay to Stellenbosch on Friday afternoon.  The road was busy because it was the start of the school holiday.  Just before we reached Caledon traffic stopped.  After waiting a while we heard that a truck overturned and blocked the road.  We waited for about an hour before we could continue and then arrived safely in Stellenbosch.

On Saturday we drove to the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town to visit the Two Oceans Aquarium.  This was my second visit to the Aquarium but the first visit for my husband, my mother and our 2 year old son, JW. 


The aquarium was very busy and quite noisy.  I don’t know if this was due to the school holiday or if it is that busy every Saturday.  We could not keep JW in his stroller for very long.  He wanted to be closer to the fish and free to go where he wants. It was hard work to keep him close to us with all the people.

At the I&J Oceans Exhibit we stopped for coffee for the grown-ups, popcorn for JW and to rest the legs.  My mom told JW that it looks as if the turtle is clapping his hands when he swims.  So every time the turtle swam past JW also clapped his hands. 


Then we walked to the penguins.  This was JW’s favourite.  He walked around and around to see them all.  On our way out we stopped to see the clown fish of “Nemo’s”. 


We went to eat lunch at Quay 4.  The food was great and the view of the harbour even better.  Then we took the longer way home past Camps Bay and over Chapman’s Peak.  That afternoon we help my sister to tidy her garden and back yard.  JW loved the lawn mower and the dogs loved the company.  It was a great day.
