Monday, Sept. 24 - 2001

Today is a busy day for us. We are touring the Cape Peninsula area.

First stop St. James Beach to view the colorful Victorian era bathing booths.

It of course was raining on the drive to St James Beach, but it let up enough so that we could get some nice pictures.

The little seaside village of St James lies just past Muizenberg en route to Kalk Bay, set against the mountain with incredible sea views and one of the prettiest little beaches. St James’ beach - of the colourful beach huts - also has a large tidal pool, is very popular with locals, and in summer holidays is packed with a variety of people and their children. This is largely because the beach is so well sheltered from the notorious winds of Cape Town, but also because it offers safe swimming and is conveniently close to the Simons Town train line.

Afterwards, we headed to Boulders Beach and the Penquin Colony

Next we headed off to the Cape Hope Nature Preserve. - We are still experiencing rain through out most of today's trip - but it has been a great time so far.

and the final stop this afternoon is the Light House at Cape Point.

Back to Cape Town we went, for dinner at the Africa Cafe
What an extraordinary dinner we had tonight.

We were able to sample a wide variety of food from the region.

I had forgotten my camera tonight, so i'm not able to show you what was missed.
