Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and other things

Yesterday was a really busy day because we had tickets for the hop on, hop off bus so we had to do lots of things to get our moneys worth.
First off was the beautiful Botanic Gardens on the slopes of Table Mountain. It is autumn here now so there weren't many flowers around, but we found an amazing protea, 

the sun shone brightly and the views were incredible. 

Our next stop was a bird and monkey park, but I kept mainly to the bird bit. They had some lovely birds, but my favourite was this giant stork baby whose knees bent backwards. 

Back on the but still again and we drove along the coast where we hopped on and off a couple of times to see the beautiful beaches and huge waves. 

Finally, we just got back to the Waterfront in time to join a sunset champagne cruise along the coast. Excellent, if rather cold outing, but lots of sparkling wine to go around. 

I have just remembered that we also did a nice harbour cruise this morning and a walk through the Company's Gardens, so we are packing it all in well.
