The thing about Cape Town, more specifically Table Mountain, is that sometimes it is gorgeous and clear, and sometimes it is shrouded in clouds, (or wearing a tablecloth, as the locals say). And sometimes there are gale-force winds from the east that prevent the cable cars from running up the mountain, which is what happened to Imogene, Jalina, Alison Rodseth and me this past weekend. Did we let that dampen our trip to the end of the continent? Heck, no!
Our weekend trip to Cape Town was repelete with a visit to the penguins at Boulders Beach, Cape Point National Park, a drive across Chapman’s Peak, the Victoria and Alfred (not Albert) Waterfront, and Bo-Kaap, the Muslim neighborhood of Cape Town. I will post some photos from our travels.
