Went to visit there again on Saturday. Many erroneously belief that the southern tip of Africa is at Cape Point but it is actually at Cape Agulhas.
V2 - the plaque close up for those who could not read the writing in V1 Smile
I appreciate all the kind comments and votes on the bird boat yesterday and especially the mods by George and Nathan - great improvement !!
Have yourself a great week Smile

The transition between oceans is an strong visual. And, the information of the plaque contains, by implication, some interesting South African history. I prefer the big picture of V1.

The Cape of Needles named by my Portuguese ancesters... Fabulous shot with the most interest because I didn't know that that's where you may see the two oceans divide/or meet... How interesting!
Nice green plaque as well! Have a good day Herman.

A fascinating photo from the very southernmost tip of the continent, Herman.
Glad they put in the English version although I think I'd have been able to hazard a guess from the Africaans.
