Today was our last day of adventures before our internship starts, and also the last day with our favorite professors, Marit and Nate. We started off our day driving along the coast toward Groot Constantia Vineyard and Museum, which is one of the Iziko Museums who we are interning for. We stopped at Camps Bay along the way and got out of the car to walk on the beach. There were artists on the beach constructing sand sculptures that were very beautiful. The mountains behind us and the waves crashing toward us with the sand between our toes was truly surreal.
After dusting off our feet, we got back in the van and continued on to Groot Constantia. When we got there we started off doing a wine cellar tour. There, we were taught about the wine making process, the difference between making red and white wine, and the fermentation process. After, we walked through the Iziko Museum part of the vineyard which is located in a manor house that had been there since the vineyard originated. We finished our Groot Constantia experience with a delicious dinner. I had the mussels and ravioli and I would definitely go back for more.
Once we finished dinner, we drove to Boulders Beach where a penguin sanctuary is located. I had never seen a penguin in person before, besides at the zoo, so it was really awesome to see them in their natural habitat.
