Tomorrow we will be leaving on a 12 day road trip through South Africa! I haven’t driven a car in over 3 months and today, I drove a car with the driver’s side on the right of the car, shifted with my left hand, while driving on the left-hand side of the road. I’m happy to report there were no accidents!
We took a mini road trip today down the Cape Peninsula to the Cape of Good Hope. The Cape Peninsula is a protected wildlife reserve and again (you’re going to get sick of me saying this)…..it is breathtaking. I thought we would be there a couple hours but we stayed 5. You just have to walk slowly to take it all in.
We started the hike up a beautiful rocky pathway.
10 more minutes of walking and the clouds started to blow over….leading us to probably the most beautiful beach I’ve ever seen. Side note: I sometimes edit my photos through Instagram to enhance the colors but I didn’t want to touch any of these…the natural beauty was too good!
The water was crystal clear and it didn’t look like there was a footprint in the pristine, white sand. We were so happy to find a set of stairs to get down there….
As soon as my feet hit the sand, I ran down the sloping beach to the water.
Can you tell we were happy to be there?
We walked up to the lighthouse point, which looks out where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Indian Ocean.
They sure were beautiful though….
After our time at Cape Point, we drove up to Simon’s Town on the way home to see if we could see any penguins. Before we even got to the water I walked by one that was in the bushes!
