When we were in Taiwan we made quite a few friends from South Africa. At our monthly teacher meetings we were encouraged to share something about our country. Nathan, our friend, fellow teacher and Capetonian shared photos of Table Mountain with us. While these photos were beautiful, nothing can really capture the beauty of being at the top of this mountain (but, that didn't stop Dan and I from trying).
Last Sunday we were lucky enough to take a cable car up to the top of Table Mountain. We ate breakfast with the most spectacular view and spent a few hours walking around the top. The views were stunning, we could see the sea all around us. The weather was perfect, not a cloud in the sky. People will tell you that Cape Town can experience three seasons in one day, high winds, clouds - not ideal weather for spending an afternoon on top of a mountain.
We plan on hiking to the top before we leave, weather permitting.
(I am still figuring out this blogging business, so our phots aren't really in order, but I think you can figure it out)
