I woke up quite late the next morning on our first day in Cape Town. Willy was already up and was sitting watching cartoons on the television. Mom and Nana were making breakfast. My favourite, smiley face French toast. Mom makes the eyes and the smiley mouth with blobs of tomato sauce and the hair with cheese. Dad was standing on the balcony looking at the ships out at sea. I went and stood next to him. The ships were like tiny toy boats on the big, dark ocean. I could see a dark blue line where the sky met the sea. Dad said that this was called the horizon. I could see some surfers out near the horizon. I thought they were very brave to go out that far in the sea – much further than the waves.
After a while I went back inside. I sat down on the last seat on the long couch in the television room. It was long and white and bent to go around the corner. As I was sitting there reading, I felt a little lever at the side of the couch. When I pulled the lever the bottom of the chair flipped up and out. Ah, so comfortable. Next thing, Willy jumped on me because he wanted to sit in the comfy chair and we started wrestling to tip each other off the couch. Dad came rushing in and made us both get off the chair and pushed the bottom back in. It was so unfair, Willy spoils everything.
