My previous post was a pic of Table Mountain from Table Bay. Today’s pic is exactly the opposite – a pic of Table Bay from Table Mountain. Lion’s Head is the little peak on the left, and you can just make out Robben Island in the background.

A view of Table Mountain from Robben Island. This would make a great spot for a braai I think.

I don’t tyink that you can ever tire of the view from or the view of Table Mountain. This shot was taken from the upper cable station view a view of Lion’s Head in the foreground, with Robben Island in the distance. If you are wondering what the red packs and ropes on the right are for, the answer is abseiling equipment. Yes if you are brave you can pay to slide down the side of the mountain on climbing ropes. ¬†While I am sure it fun I think I will stick to shooting the pictures.

The room in which Nelson Mandela lived for 18 years of his life on Robben Island. Seeing the size of it is a humbling experience.
