…it really is hard to imagine 9.5 months of days like this…
Being Coloradans, we began plotting when and how we would climb Table Mountain as soon as we set eyes on it. We set out the first morning. It was cold and wet (no rain, just waterfalls and puddles left over from lots of rain yesterday and overnight), but an incredible 2 hr hike, lunch at the top, and then a tram ride down. After a taxi ride back to the hostel and a hot shower, we caught one of the local doubledecker, open-top sightseeing tour buses that go around the city and took the route that goes around Table Mountain and the surrounding towns that we could see from the top of the mountain. We also stopped along the route at the botanical gardens and Camp Bay – both very cool! We ended the day with an African game meat platter – croc ribs, warthog ribs, gemsbock and ostrich – and some SA wine.
It’s going to be a great trip!
