A small Cape Town holiday

We went on a little mid-year Cape Town holiday last week.  Here are some of my pics from the trip, mostly from my Instagram account, and usually edited with beloved VSCOcam.

Day one of the holiday started with a most perfect summer’s day, in the middle of winter.  Cape Town showing off, as she does.

A walk on the prom was an obvious, and perfect, end to the day (with a cocktail at the Winchester Mansions).

Day two saw us being tourists and riding a big red bus, visiting one of my very favourite places, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, and a ride along the coast.

We then left Cape Town and went off to Lakenvlei dam, just outside of Ceres.  Cold!  But beautiful, with fynbos and proteas and still, icy waters.

And finally, back to Cape Town for some delicious lunches and dinners, and a walk through the lovely Greenpoint Park and Biodiversity Garden (we need one of these in Joburg!).

Thanks Cape Town … a pleasure, as always.  Joburg now feels particularly cold, dry and brown!
