Good morning.....
Thank you so much to TrevBatWCC for his UA for my Waterbuck much appreciated.
A break for a few days from my Wildlife.....A lot of you ask about Cape Town and also where I live so thought I would share Friday evenings sunset over the Marina at our complex. V2 is looking back towards the new soccer stadium and Signal hill. V3 is our view towards Table mountain. Also views towards the CT Waterfront and lastly some boats enjoying the sunset and sundowners. We leave Cape Town and South Africa forever in 8 weeks time so have to get as many beautiful images as I can before its too late. Sure going to miss it.
Have a nice Monday

The only place for natural beauty that even comes close to Cape Town is Rio. Anyone who has lived in Africa has to miss it when he/she leaves. Where you are going is very calm and safe and has its own beauty.
The light in this shot of the marina is fabulous.
