2012 - OCEAN PRINCESS - TABLE MOUNTAIN

TO THE TOP OF THE HILL


View 2012 PRINCESS - CAPE TOWN TO DOVER & 2012 CAR - A TANZANIA SAFARI on hasbeen's travel map.

STILL NOT TIME FOR THE BOAT RIDE

SO - IT HAS TO BE ANOTHER TRY FOR THE TOP OF TABLE MOUNTAIN

SEE THE LITTLE BIT OF SOMETHING STICKING OUT AT THE TOP RIGHT?

THAT'S THE CABLE CAR STOP......

NO TAXI THIS TIME.

I HAD FOUND OUT THAT THE BIG RED BUS STOPS AT THE CABLE CAR & THEN CONTINUES ON IT'S LOOP. THIS I A GREAT DEAL.

I MET TWO GIRLS FROM MONTREAL ON MY OTHER BIG RED BUS TRIP & THEY ARE ON THIS ONE AS WELL. QUEL SURPRISE!

THE BIG RED BUS WENDS IT'S WAY THROUGH CAPE TOWN. I THINK THIS IS A PART OF THE CAPE MALAY AREA..

THE CABLE CAR ITSELF, ROTATES AS IT GOES UP. NOW THAT IS A GREAT IDEA. EVERYONE GETS A VIEW.

I WAS NOT DRESSED FOR THE WEATHER UP THERE, SO I HAD A QUICK STROLL AROUND THE TOP & HEADED FOR THE BUS...

CAPE TOWN IS RENOWNED FOR IT'S BEAUTIFUL SCENERY BUT THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING GETTING IN THE WAY

I WAS TOLD BY A LOCAL THAT THIS STUFF IS SOME SORT OF ALGAL BLOOM. UGLY & I WOULD NOT WANT TO SWIM IN THAT. WALK ON IT MAYBE....

AFTER THAT WALK AROUND THE WATERFRONT I DECIDE TO TAKE A SAIL OUT ON THE OCEAN.

THERE WERE ONLY THREE OF US PLUS THREE CREW SO THEY ARE NOT GETTING RICH TODAY.

MORE OF THE ALGEA... THE SEA ALSO HAD A SLIGHT RED TINGE. MORE ALGEA..

FOR LUNCH I HEAD TO A RESTAURANT I HAD HEARD OF THAT SERVES LOCAL FOOD.

TOO BAD IT DOES NOT OPEN FOR LUNCH.

BUT - THERE IS SOME STAFF THERE & THEY OPEN UP FOR ME....

AND WONDER OF WONDERS, I AM FINALY ON BOARD MY SHIP - THE OCEAN PRINCESS.

ON HIS KNEES IS STUART WHO IS DESTINED TO BE ON MY DINER TABLE & STANDING IS ONE OF THE BEAUTIFUL MEMBERS OF STAFF. THIS BOAT HAS A SURFEIT OF THOSE...

THEY DO LOOK A TRIFLE ODD BUT I THINK THERE IS A BUG ON THE DECK THERE..
