Visit to Cape Point

This will be a late post.

Actually the photos that I’m going to put here were taken on Sunday, but only today I managed to arrange them, and get a map, for who is outside of South Africa to understand better.

This Sunday we went to visit the Cape of Good Hope, more know here as the Cape Point.

It took us 2 hours to get there, you can see in the map, where we live, to get to the destination.

On the way Cape Point, N. wanted me to take a lot of photos of the mountains, so here is the proof…,

Actually in this part of the country, we have a lot of mountains all around, which is funny, because in some places, at winter time, you can see snow, and in the same day just go and walk on the beach!

Now, Cape Point is situated in a park reserve, with a lot of wild life, like ostrich, baboons, bucks (the national South Africa animal), etc.

In this photo you can see the entrance of the reserve park.

Then for you to go to the actual lighthouse, you must go by, like they call it, a Flying Dutchman Funicular.

You can also walk up the mountain, but we went by funicular, because we had two kids.

On the top you still have to walk to the lighthouse, a few steps, nothing much.

So here is the image of the lighthouse from the funicular exit.

And if you look to the opposite direction you can see the actual Cape of Good Hope.

Don’t have any photos of that, it was very windy, and a lot of baboons on the loose, we had to be extra careful, because these little animals like to still everything from your hands, and sometimes they can actually get aggressive.

And just to finish the all family, less me, someone had to take the photo!!!

It was fun, the kids had fun, and it was a relaxed and a different Sunday, for a change!

In crochet news. I’ve managed to finish the dresses for the girls. One shrug down and the second one is almost done.

See you
