South Africa - Week 1 - Sunday (Feb 17)

On Sunday Mark picked me up and went driving around Cape Town to check things out. We actually managed to get a lot in this first day. First we drove out to Camps Bay and had a really good lunch at a restaurant on the beach.

After lunch we cruised up to Table Mountain, which overlooks Cape Town, but it was too windy to take the cable car up to the top. So, we drove across to Signal Hill and took and got a pretty good view of the city and bay from there. Here is a view of Table Mountain and Cape Town from the road up Signal Hill.

After seeing the sites Mark drove us out to a nearby vineyard called Speir. I guess it's more of a vineyard lite. More of a multi-purpose attraction with wine tasting sprinkled in. Still, it was fun to see. Afterward we returned to grab some dinner in Cape Town.
