On Saturday morning we were up bright and early to head off for the small village of Stanford, which is about 20 min drive from Hermanus, for their annual triathlon. Being a sleepy village we shouldn't have been surprised when we arrived at the time advertised in the local paper, only to find that we were an hour and a half early! Anyway, after the organizers decided not to do the swim in the river because the water was a bit cold and bike problems, my son eventually finished with an excellent run and a good time was had by all!Stanford is on the banks of the Kein (small) river which wends it's way to the lagoon and eventually into the sea just outside Hermanus. A fun activity is to go down the river on the African Queen. Unfortunately we didn't have time for that this weekend.
