Last weekend i had the opportunity to visit my old home town Cape Town.

We had a long to-do list which obviously included visiting the famous Brass Bell in Kalk Bay with friends and family, climbing Lions Head if the weather permitted and heading to Boulders Beach in Simon's Town to see how the Penguins are doing, to name but a few. So after a delayed flight and not much sleep we finally arrived and realized the weather wasn't as good as we hoped. I hadn't been to Boulders since the reserve was created and i was really happy to see the large amount of bird life together with all the new born Penguins in this protected area. Boulders Penguin Colony is home to a growing colony of the vulnerable African Penguin. Wooden walkways allow visitors to view the penguins in their natural habitat and there is also a new information centre.

Unfortunately we where only there for a couple of hours and the cold south east wind came through bringing in the clouds and obscuring the morning light, so we drove around the beautiful Simon's Town and headed to the Bell for some lunch and a cold Castle!

Cape Town has a certain romance about it, with the wild Cape Peninsula flanked by both the Indian and Atlantic oceans,beautiful beaches and panoramic views, I wondered if we should re-locate back to the Stad, I was sooo relaxed! On our last night the weather broke we decided to have sun downers at the Blue Peter, with awesome views across the bay Joburg was the last place i wanted to go back to.

I guess all good things come to a end and it only encourages us to return!

Realizing how beautiful and romantic our South Africa really is.
