South Africa: To the Cape of Good Hope
Off around the coast today with our South African guide, Karin. We started out with the beach-front suburbs and beautiful homes along the hills; then the 12 Apostles (and no, they don’t have individual names); Hout Bay; the fabulous Chapman’s Peak drive and eventually into Table Mountain National Park to visit the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point.
We continued our trip around the coast to Simon’s Town, it’s famous False Bay and the “Boulders” where we visited the really cute African Penguin colony at Foxy Beach.
By now, it was late in the day and we had worked up quite an appetite – so off to Kalk Bay for another incredible seafood meal, this time at the Harbour House restaurant hanging right out over the Atlantic.
After resting and refueling, we headed back towards town and made a stop at Kirstenbosch, the national botanical garden. What a wonderful way to end an amazing day.
