Experience a Cape Winter…

If you you haven’t experienced a Cape Winter then we highly recommend that you consider visiting. In Cape Town, the summers are warm, dry, and mostly clear; the winters are long, cool, wet, and partly cloudy. Over the course of the year, the temperature typically varies from 48°F to 76°F and is rarely below 41°F or above 84°F.

The ever changing canvas

This ever changing canvas is just impossible to capture on a old iPhone 😏 One cannot image how incredible this view really is until you have had the privilege of actually being here on this verandah. … and I wonder just how many people have sat here in awe since 1850 😍
