Oh…Mother City!

Last week we went on a trip to the Mother City of Cape Town! I regularly visit the city for work and business, but have always had a desire to spent a night. In all my years living in the Western Cape, I have never slept in the city!

You all know my fascination with cities like Johannesburg. Read about it here! I love learning about the city where I live and play. This was an impromptu trip…just like I like it!

We stayed with a great couple called Igrid and Basil. Their lodge is in Kloofzight, and the My city bus-stop is literally opposite their home. So convenient. We love public transport and took a bus to Houtbay.

We had lunch at Fish on the Rocks, our favourite place to have fish and chips. Then we accidentally discovered Bay Harbour market in one of the old fish factory buildings just opposite the eatery. What a great place to hang out! The vibe was great…and the artisans and design work on display even better! We spent the whole afternoon browsing and enjoying the atmosphere! Sorry I didn’t take any photos!

Then jumped on the bus again back to our room.

After a good night’s rest, we took some great pictures, and greeted our very hospitable hosts. We prayed on the rooftop before we left.

What a backdrop!

What a great time we had…and the weather was perfection! A great way to end of the school holidays…and I have inspiration for daaayyyyyys! 🙂
