Views Are My New Addiction

Table Mountain, Cape Town, South Africa

Wow got the chance to chill out in Cape Town with a sneaky desire to climb Table Mountain. My brother in law drove ne down with his daughter Sarah, mum and brothers.

I got the chance to stay in the Best Western Cape Suites Hotel , it was a lovely complex, nice pools and a relaxed bar where I could eat and drink all day.

My walk started early morning the Best Western Cape Suites Hotel did free shuttle service and got dropped of right in front of my start point.

The ascent was straight up from the very start at Platteklip Gorge, it is all steps, big chunky steps all the way. I was faced with the face of Table Mountain and was thinking, how am I going to do this, but head down I made my way up…The pictures say it all about the walk with the views.

My Garmin feed wasn’t very good so its best not to follow it to closely.
