Table Mountain

I am a couple of days late with this blog as we are now in England, sitting on a train and heading home.
However, I can't miss blogging about our outing to Table Mountain on Monday. It was a beautiful day and there was a huge queue to get on to the cable car, but eventually we got our turn. 

There was an excellent path on the flat top of the Table and the views were incredible. The island on the photo below is Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned. 

We also saw some dassie, which is a cute little animal that is about 25 centimetres long and is apparently related to elephants! 

We didn't stay too long as we were worried about the wait to get back down from the mountain, but strangely there was no queue at all and we were down and on our bus within 15 minutes. This was fortunate as we had a plane to catch later in the day. 
While I remember, we also went on a bike tour this morning with a lovely guide called Innocent. He took us all around the centre of Cape Town and we finished at brightly coloured Bo Kaap District.
