Just look at that beach, you really cannot compare with it.
A couple of six second exposure of one of the streams inside Kirstenbosch Gardens in Cape Town. Kirstenbosch,
Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden is truly one of the most beauthful gardens in the world. It covers approximately 46 hecatares, and contains a staggering 7000 different plant species. The Cape Floristic Region, which includes Kirstenbosch, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site –the first botanic garden in the world to be included.
We were there for a picnic to celebrate a friend’s birthday, you are welcome to take your own picnics, but they also have two wonderful restaurants.
A fishing boat in dry dock in Cape Town, it looks like they have been doing some maintenance to the hull.
I quite like the bright colours against the grey background.
This giant 50m Ferris wheel has been at the entrance to the Waterfront since the beginning of June.
According the website, “the giant observation wheel, a first for Cape Town and South Africa, is a unique way to savour panoramic bird’s-eye views of Cape Town, Paarl, Table Mountain and Robben Island. Sporting 36 fully-enclosed cabins, friends and family can sit back and savour the city skyline on the 15 minute round trip”
I have not managed to visit it yet (it only opens at 11am), but I am looking forward to my visit. Ticket prices are R70 per person, and R40 for children, so I don’t think that it is too bad.
You can also hire the luxary private cabin, but they decline to give prices for that on their website!
They promise it will be here for at least 6 months, so I suspect that it will move somewhere else directly after the Christmas season.
This vuvuzela has been sitting on top of the unfinished bridge for quite some time now. It was built by Hyundai as a promotion for the FIFA world cup tournament which South Africa recently held.
It is approximately 53m long (112 feet), and was blown as a call to action to go and watch the game before each match.
I hope that they leave it there as a reminder of a great month, and of course it finally puts the bridge to good use!
