Cape Town

Steam Train

The steam train came past just as I was arriving home from my morning run yesterday. It is great that there are still people enthuastic about keeping little pieces of the age of steam alive. If you want to go for a ride, chat to Atlantic Rail.

Argus Cycle Tour

Yesterday was the Argus Cycle Tour, a 109k cycle through Cape Town. I have ridden about 6 or 7 of them, but since I discovered the world of running I have barely been on a bike. But I was still on the side of the road with camera in hand.

V&A Ferris Wheel

The Ferris Wheel at the V&A Waterfront. It was originally installed for the 2010 FIFA World Cup, and has been here ever since. Personally I think it is a nice addition to the waterfront.

The picture also reminds me that I need to visit the Da Vinci exhibition before it closes.

Table Mountain and Cape Town

According to the New York Times, Cape Town is the top place to visit. This shot of Table Mountain with the city in the foreground was take from the Robben Island ferry

Winter waterfall

A lovely winter waterfall on my regular running route on Boyes Drive. One of the great things about running is that you see so much more that you do in a car. And no I don’t usually run with my camera, but for this run I decided to take my small point and shoot, and I am really glad that I did. It is true – the best camera is the one you have with you.
