Dream’s Cape & Cloud Formations


((((((((((((((((((I AM BACK))))))))))))))))))))))))

In case you somehow missed my non stop blabbering about my trip, I have just got back from Cape Town. Yes, Worship at the House of Blues temporarily headed for the sun with the "proper job" (the one that actually pays the bills).

I am a very lucky lady to be able to see such wonderful places. I know that most OLs (office ladies) would never get such opportunities. Please do not think that I am bragging, I am not. I am counting my blessings and ever grateful.

It has been an intense week. 11 hour and 40 minute flight, and if that doesn’t bend your mental then there are the long days with 7.45am starts and then lucky to be in bed by 1.00am. But I grit my teeth and work hard all the while anticipating a couple of half days off!!!!

It is so very worth the slog!

I have been to Cape Town twice before and never made it up the Table Mountain. This year I was determined! On a personal note, my Grannny had wished all her life to see this mountain, sadly she passed away before she did. So, I did this for her.

View of the Table Mountain from the Waterfront.

View from the top. Oh and that is the football stadium that we shall see rocking during this summer's world cup!

I didn't climb! I got the cable cart because I am a lazy old cow.

Surreal dreamscapes. The landscape up there is fantastic. Not surprising that it is a World Heritage site. They say that it is the world's richest floristic area in the world.

I always wondered what it would feel like to be in a cloud. I now know that it is bloody cold! It feels like dense damp mist, but it moves freely and fluidly and is really magical to experience.

Clouds for one second then blue skies and ocean the next! Can you see that little island in the distance? That is Robben Island. The place that Nelson Mandela was imprisoned.

The cloud is back!

And that is my boss!! He jumped over a gap between the mountain and a large boulder to get to where he is standing. I was terrified! I am not ver good with heights.

Colours are even more vibrant in the African sun.

The whole city

There you have it. Part uno of my trip! I will be back soon with some more snippets and to award the devoted reader there will be a lil contest at the end of the week.

It's good to be back home in spite of the cold gloomy weather.
