There's a big bicycle race happening here this weekend and the route is very scenic. Yesterday, we took the car for a drive and followed much of the route that the cyclists will be doing.
Here's where we drove yesterday...
Yesterday's scenic drive of 119 kms (74 miles).
Clear blue sky and Table Mountain had great visibility!
Drove right through downtown.
Then we headed for the waterfront at Sea Point.
We parked the car and went for a walk on Clifton Beach.
Camp's Bay is a little bit touristy.
But still a nice place to go for a walk.
Next, we drove to the harbor at Hout Bay.
Wandered around Hout Bay Harbor and watched the seals.
And looked at all the boats.
Next was the fantastic Chapman's Peak Drive.
The coast further south.
Nice clear ocean.
We had actually planned on going to Cape Point. But it's a national park, and we couldn't justify the R105 ($11.25) per adult entry fee just to drive down to the bottom. We had already been to Cape Agulhas which is the southernmost tip of Africa, so didn't really need to do this.
Next up, we pulled in to Boulder's Beach to see the penguins one more time. We didn't pay the entry fee, just wandered along the free boardwalk section.
Penguins are so funny.
You can get quite close to them!
Then, it was back to Mark's. It was rush hour by the time we got close, but most of the traffic was going in the opposite direction. Almost 5:00pm by the time we got home.
Mark's cat, Oscar.
Ruth and Oscar are best friends now!
