Touristy day in Cape Town

On Sunday morning we took the MyCiti bus from Camps Bay to Kloof Street in Cape Town. We wandered through the gardens of the Mount Nelson Hotel and then down the company gardens to the National Gallery and popped in to browse the George Hallett exhibition – A Nomad’s Harvest. www.iziko.org.za

We ambled up the deserted Long Street which was probably pumping a few hours previously.

Mike’s stomach then started to grumble so we headed down Bree Street, the hub of trendy bars and dining spots in Cape Town.  Most of the restaurants were closed. As we have never been to Lucky Fish & Chips, we decided to give it a go. We shared a small portion of fish and chips and it was delicious.

Quite satisfied we set off to De Waterkant Village and browsed around the Lindt store, without buying anything, which in itself is a miracle.  We did window shopping in the Cape Quarter and then headed up Somerset Road to Greenpoint.  We heard that Big Route had the best pizza’s in Cape Town and therefore we had to try it for ourselves.  We shared a pizza and it was really delectable and worthy of their reputation.

We strolled around the Green Point common and then to Mouille Point where we could appreciate the Soft Walls photography exhibition on the promenade.

At Bantry Bay, I started to complain why we walk so far when we have two cars, two bikes and a scooter between us.  Mike pretended not to hear.  As we hit Clifton, so did the rain – we soldiered on.  I love walking in Camps Bay but walking up Camps Bay Drive I always find slightly inconvenient, and during a torrent – even more so.

After a hot shower, all snuggled up, sipping red wine, with the rain beating the window pane we discussed what a great day we had. Moaning forgotten.
