Our best friends moved to Cape Town little over a year ago to the beautiful Hout Bay. We spent the next few days with them relaxing and falling in love with their ever-so-fast-growing little boy, Liam.
On the first day we took a drive down to the popular Mariner’s Wharf, famous for its fish and chips and then took a slow walk on the harbour wall, where dreamers sketched and seals tried their hungry luck at a careless seagull.
The next chilly morning was happily spent at home watching their queen basset make herself at home on the patio furniture (the same one she managed to destroy on a few days later, we hear) and running after little Garnett. A short drive around Chapman’s Peak took us to Noordhoek Farm Village, another popular hangout amongst the locals with everything delicious and decadent.
We had a meeting in Cape Town on the last morning, but soon joined Andrea and Liam for a walk around the aquarium at the V&A waterfront. It is hardly surprising that I took “underwater” images of all the pretty nemos and other fishies…. It felt like cheating, but how could I resist…
Goodbyes are never nice, but I’m sure we’ll be back soon! Miss you already my beautiful friend <3 After a quick print job and lunch consisting of the most amazing tasting bacon pancakes we’ve ever had at the awesome and vibrant Woodstock Exhange, we headed off past colourful streets and art adorned buildings to our next stop. Perhaps next time we can talk about “A day in the streets of Cape Town”.
