The Big Finish
So... we're driving back to the hotel from our great day in the wine country, and Clive asks, "Hey, do you want to see if Table Mountain is open?" He knew we hadn't had time to get up there since the weather was so bad.
"Absolutely!" was the response.
Clive checked the report and found that the mountain was indeed open. And we had 10 minutes to get there for the last cable car of the day. Being the consummate guide he is, and not wanting to disappoint his clients, he told us to hang on tight as he proceeded to evade rush-hour traffic in an eleventh-hour push for the cable car station. He dropped us at the gate and said he'd be waiting when we got finished. Sure enough, we had only a minute or two to spare.
This made our trip complete. What a view, what a sunset, what a memory! I rushed around the summit as the sun touched the horizon, trying to make the most of my opportunity. And Clive was patiently waiting for us when we finally got back down. Thanks again to Clive and Godfrey from capetowntourguide.com for giving us three days we'll never forget.
