Table Mountain, Cape Town

Today we met up with a friend from Dublin named Katharina and took it easy. We rode the hop-on/hop-off bus around the city, and up to Table Mountain. Clouds were blowing across the peak sometimes covering it completely and sometimes leaving periods of empty, clear blue sky. We rode the 360-degree slowing spinning cable car to the top in 4 minutes. Got off and spent about an hour walking all around the top - it's beautiful (and the clouds actually added a lot to the experience - we were completely surrounded by clouds and then they all blew away). Had a beer at the restaurant on top and then descended the same way. Back on the bus, we stopped again at Camp's Bay Beach, lunched at 'Bungalow' (my new favourite restaurant where the 'sea food platter for one' is clearly for two), and then spent the rest of the day lounging on the beach watching the sun sink closer and closer to the horizon. A really relaxing day!
