To reach the Constantia wine region, take the Blue route of the City Sightseeing Tour then switch to the Purple route at this corner.

 

The cold Atlantic Ocean doesn’t discourage surfers on the beaches south of Capetown, under the watchful gaze of the Twelve Apostles (peaks).
   
The Cape of Good Hope is wild and windy!

Fabulous Capetown 

  
The Waterfront has a vibe by day and night, with brightly decorated sculptures of rhinos and tastefully restored remnants of days gone by.

   
   
People are posing for photos in front of Table Mountain even though it was blanketed by cloud.

But this morning we awoke to a fine day and caught the Hop-on Hop-off double decker bus and braved the hour and a half queue for the cable car, along with half the city.

   
 
Table Mountain was a riot of Spring colour, both human (see top photo) and floral.

   
   
The Red tour took us back along the coast, where more locals were at play.

   
 
We topped our sightseeing with a walk along the waterfront canal system and photographed high tea at the six-star One & Only hotel.

   
 
We felt as content and weary as this seal near the canal.
