This is just a quick note to say we've added some photos from our road trip and coastal walk today, Easter Monday.
Today the weather was much nicer and we drove through the southern suburbs to Newlands forest for a walk. During the walk you could look down onto Cape Town's rugby and cricket grounds were South Africa national teams often play.
We then headed to Muizenberg which was full of hundreds of surfers enjoying the waves.
We then walked the coastal walk to St James with it's colourful beach huts and on to Kalk bay.
Kalk Bay was really nice - had lots of art & antique shops and some nice restaurants.
We went to one which had a braai (bar-b-q) and I got an unexpectedly huge portion of ribs - there were 3 racks!
Mish got calamari which was also a huge portion & very tasty. We then made our way back on the coastal walk to Muizenberg and then drove via the nearby Constantia wine-lands & then coastal route back to our Camps Bay apartment where we enjoyed a lovely sunset.
This evening we took it easier and went out for a cocktail & a beer (still stuffed from earlier!) and I'm typing this watching the Chelsea match on the tv in the apartment.
Tomorrow the forecast is also good so we plan to get up early and do the Platteklip Gorge route up to the top of Table Mountain.
A pic of this route is shown on a photo - wish us luck!.
