Today was a walk up Table Mountain, we drove there though you can just get the sightseeing bus. We chose to not walk along the road at the bottom which meant it took about 3 hours (advertised as 2hrs). The walk was great, if steep in places and hot! Plenty of photos of the views to come. We met Liz a Canadian girl (IT girl working in Botswana, taking a few extra days holiday in Cape Town) who we had breakfast with us in the Lodge this morning, and joined her on the cable car down. If anyone comes here the walk is fun, but hard work and would probably take about 60-90 mins from the road if you are reasonably fit. The cable car was very good - the floor slowly rotates enabling evryone to get a good view.
Spent the rest of the afternoon down at Camps Bay on the beach, white sands, freezing cold water and locals trying to sell the usual tat.
Not sure on tonights plan as yet, to Stellenbosch for wine tasting tomorrow.
