A Good day in Cape Town

Every day in Cape Town is a great day to be living, but there are those exceptional days – 30-35 degrees and no wind, just blue skies and flat seas to enjoy. (I will let the photographs do the talking)

That day was yesterday it was time to make the most of the day, so off I went for an adventure. Of course the day has to start with a walk along the promenade in Sea Point. It started with takeaway coffee and a Croissant from one of the coffee shops by Mouille point light house, my starting point where I parked the car. My destination Sea Point pool. Along the way I pass loads of people walking and running for exercise, with the sea on one side, with small beaches ready for the sun tanners and a lawn on the other to just sit and look out at Robben Island.

Back in my car, it was off to Camps bay via Bantry bay and of course Clifton. With the weather just getting better I was looking forward to a stop and a swim at Camps Bay Beach.

One hour was all I could manage on the beach, so I was back in the car heading for Hout Bay for lunch. On the way I had to stop at Llandudno beach just outside of Hout bay for another quick walk along the 500 meters of beach and wonderful blue Ocean.

Lunch was of course fish and chips from the Harbour with a view of the mountains above Chapman peak. Deciding to drive to the False bay side for a walk through Kalk Bay village, I had to go over the Constantia pass and couldn’t resist a stop at a wine farm in Constantia to buy a few bottles of wine and look out over False Bay to Hottentots-Holland Mountains (that would be another days adventure).

My drive down to through Constantia, took me past Muizenberg where the famous surfers corner is situated, to my last stop for the day – Kalk Bay. Where I took an early evening walk through the village before heading back home. I had realised that on a good day in Cape Town, a beach drive was a great way to make the most of a perfect day.
