Groot Constantia and an attempted mugging!

An excellent lunch today at Groot Constantia, South Africa’s oldest wine farm.

In the afternoon I went on my usual Noordhoek Beach walk but due to the very strong wind I was alone on the long beach. At least I thought I was, until confronted by a young guy demanding money. When I refused he attacked me, and I managed to hit him fairly hard on the head, after which he made off.

In thirteen consecutive years visiting Cape Town, that was the first violent incident that I have encountered but a lesson on not to walk alone on deserted beaches!
