The queue to get to Table Mountain takes almost two hours to negotiate:

On the way out to the Cape of Good Hope the railway hugs the shoreline:

At Boulders Beach there are lots of penguins and granite boulders:

also buskers; I bought a CD from the choir because African choirs are excellent

Aussie invaders:

This is either bitou bush or boneseed; both are serious coastal weeds in AU but native here:

Next time: I reach the world's most famous cape and the end of the journey.

Thanks for the interesting pics Phil :D I would presume that the trip to the top of table mountain is undertaken only on clear days. That beach and that granite rock looks something out of the Seychelles :mrgreen: Presumably only Penguins are allowed to sunbathe there?

Correct on both counts.
Access to the beach at Boulders Bay is prohibited.
The problem in getting to Table Mountain apart from the crowds is the weather: if it is too windy the cable car stops running, which makes it difficult to book, even on the day. If it is cloudy you would probably still try because it can lift any time.
