52 Weeks of Happiness - Week 45

Back in April
when Scott told me about the job offer
and the move to Zambia,
he also told me we wouldn't be able to go home for Christmas.

I was not happy.

He said we could go somewhere instead. 
Possibly Cape Town.

That didn't cheer me up either.

Then my mate, Louise, said her family would be in Cape Town for Christmas
and, well,
it started looking great.

We had a fabulous time in Cape Town.

We went to the Aquarium,

saw some cheetahs,

got a history lesson,

saw some penguins,

and got breath taking views from Table Mountain.

But the best part
of our vacation,
was Ethan being reunited with his mate.

Happiness is spending time with your mates.

I can see where getting those two together would be your favorite part...

Loved seeing more pictures of Cape Town, but what I enjoyed most is the look on Ethan's face when he was with his friend. I'm sure he was very happy to see him. Also, that view from Table Mountain was quite spectacular.

I am so glad you got to be with friends and have a great time. I know you were disappointed about not going home, but Capetown looks like it was fabulous!
