Happy Feet

Simon's Town reminded me of Monterey, California. The restaurant, which I'm sure every tourist eats at, produced good food and a great view. I could have loafed around Simon's Town all day. After lunch, we walked to Boulders Beach for one of my most anticipated activities: seeing the penguin colony!

After Simon's town, we returned to Cape Town via Silvermine to take in the view.

We then stopped at the Botanical Gardens at the foot of Table Mountain. We were at the tail end of the summer, so I can only imagine what the blossoms would be like in the spring.

Before returning to our hotel we stopped at the colorful Bo Kaap neighborhood up on a hill. The colorful hilltop townhouses in this harbor city reminded me of St. John's.

And now with some visibility, we walked to the waterfront from our hotel on our way to dinner. The clouds on Table Mountain are called "The Tablecloth."
