Good morning...
Thank you to Diane (Fefe) and to Fred (Fred 263) for their UA's for yesterdays image....it really cheered me up.
Today a view of Cape Town taken from Robben Island.Its about 10 kms off land and lies in Table bay.
One has to pay for a guided tour of the island and you are put on a bus...they let you get off at this point for a few minutes to take photographs. It was a very hazy day in Cape Town unfortunately.This was hand held as no tripods are allowed.
Have a nice SundayGrin

This is lovely Colleen - a beautiful seascape.
We are looking out to sea at the moment - but it is grey, windy, rainy and very bleak!

A very beautiful seascape view across to Table Mountain, Colleen: the f/g rocks make a good base to the image and the breaking waves add interest in the near/middle ground.

Lol your toes would fall off Trev, the water is that cold...we don't swim in the Atlantic sea, Capetonians drive to the other side of the Cape if we want to swim, The Indian Ocean is a lot warmer.

Splendid seascape. Hope you feel better soon.
To anyone who doesn't want a cold, flu or bronchitis, try gargling twice each night with water (when you clean your teeth, all year round) and all the germs come pouring out![i]

Yes it is Phil, you have to book your seat on the ferry weeks in advance, then they herd everyone into about 5 or 6 buses. The tour leaders on the bus are all ex political prisoners from Robben island. The tour works like clockwork with every minute planned to enable them to get you back to the ferry when the next load of tourists arrive. It's a must do for everyone but not great for photographers. All my island shots are taken from a moving bus. More images of the island and jail to follow ..

A fond memory of when my husband and I with our family sailed into Cape Town.
We didn’t have time to go up to Table Mountain because we didn’t dock until 4pm.
But with a quick run around the shops and a lovely meal then a tour around the town by taxi
we were happy. Then we sailed on to Fremantle of course, that was in November 1968…..GrinGrinGrin
