Monday, July 14th, Protea Breakwater Lodge, Cape Town, South Africa


What a beautiful day!  On the road early to make the long drive between Knysna and Cape Town, we got to see the south coast of the country.  Several clear views of beach breaks from the top of hills helped make my day, when we weren’t passing sheep, canola oil seed fields, and a variety of high income communities built in the 1950’s once this coast had a decent road to it.  It is truly amazing how this country can support such a disparity between the housing of its people.  While I understand that apartheid was ended, segregation of residences has not.

When we reached the top of the valley overlooking Cape Town, the views were spectacular.  Four million people wrapped around a large bay with a point extending all the way out to one of the southern most points in Africa.

Descending into town, we topped that view off by driving up to the mountain gondola taking visitors to the top of Table Mountain. 
A distinct floral environment, and one of the oldest rocks on the earth, it proclaims itself one of the seven natural wonders of the world.
