Looking forward to a few days with Richard that lives in Cape Town. We met him through a friend and past co-worker that travels to South Africa a few times a year.
Our first stop bright and very early is St James Beach –
St James beach is well known for its trademark colorful Victorian bathing boxes and large tidal pool. During the summer months, the beach is a favorite amongst locals and tourists.
It was extremely overcast but Richard assured us it would burn off in no time…
As you can see the boys do not mind one bit! They will explore in any weather conditions.
Off to the next…Cape Town is surrounded by coastline that offer wonderful beaches, but none are more interesting nor more beautiful than the Boulder’s Beach in Simon’s Town.
This beach, with its wind sheltered bays and safe sandy shores, is home to a breeding colony of over 2000 endangered African Penguins.
Boulders Beach forms part of the Table Mountain National Park. The boys really wanted to swim near them so we went to a spot Richard knew about.
Bren had no problem jumping in and looking for the penguins. This spot Richard picked was pure bliss. The water was crystal clear but so cold!
Our late morning already has been spectacular! We are off to fuel up (lunch) and a hike to the lighthouse at Cape Point.
Cape Point is a promontory at the southeast corner of the Cape Peninsula, which is a mountainous and scenic landform that runs north-south for about thirty kilometers at the extreme southwestern tip of the Africa.
What a day full of blissful memories to last a lifetime…All of us at that exact moment wondered what Richard had in store for us the next day.
Part three of our adventures to follow soon…
