Table Mountain & The Most Southern Tip of Africa

Table Mountain on a clear day.

Table Mountain was covered with the ‘table cloth’ for most of the time we were in Cape Town.  The clouds don’t just sit on top of the mountain, but they pour over the mountain.  It is really cool to see.  We decided to climb the mountain even though it was partly covered.  Luckily, just before we got to the top, the clouds on the Cape side cleared and we took a bunch of pictures.  Couldn’t see the North side.  Would have been nice to see the Twelve Apostles peaks and False Bay.  We ate our sack lunch and rode the cable car down.

Then we started down the Garden Route.  We had the adventure of looking for, and finding, the most southern tip of the African continent.  The road took us through the country side with very few residents and well-kept dirt roads.  I was surprised, even in the sticks the roads were well marked with big directional signs.  That was very helpful seeing we only had the vague map included in our tour book.
