I took a 360 with Ren and Patrick in it and I generated a “little planet” projection of the 360 which makes it look like they are standing on top of the world! We spent a day going to wineries, we went to see the Penguins in Simons Town, we went to the V&A waterfront and did shopping and had meals, we went to a Beer House in Cape Town to try local beers, and they got a taste of the cruising life joining in for dinners and drinks with sailing friends of ours. And, one of the highlights was our trip up Table Mountain. We ended up with a really perfect day – sunny and great visibility, and no wind. Make sure to see the pictures in the album below. We took the cable car of course, because the climb up the cliffs is crazy. Picture here shows Ren and Patrick with Cape Town behind from Table Mountain.
Patrick actually got a taste of “sea legs”. After sleeping on the boat the first night he felt a bit unsteady on the land the first day. But, probably the long trip by plane and sleep exhaustion had a little to do with it. We had hoped to take them out for a sail on Tahina, but the winds kicked up to 30+ knots so it wasn’t possible. The next day we were leaving to go to the Kruger Game Park – more on that in a later post.
The slideshow below gives you a taste of the wonderful weather, fun activities, and pictures of penguins.
