The most perfect day in Cape Town.

Today was one of those perfect days in Cape Town.  I went to visit family in Melkbosstrand and on my way home I stopped at Bouberg beach and took some photos of what else than Table Mountain.

There was some boats in the bay on one wreck was so close, it looked like one was able to touch it.

And what is a view of Table Mountain and Cape Town without the Cape Town Stadium.

In my Picasa Gallery you can see a closer view of the stadium together with some other photos I have taken of ships in the bay and people (babies) and dogs on the beach..

Castle of Good Hope not on the list …

WebUrbanist ran an article today called Starry Knights: 14 Stellar Star-Shaped Fortresses which did not include our beloved castle in Cape Town.  Here is a picture I grabbed from Google Maps.

From Wikipedia:

Built by the Dutch East India Company between 1666 and 1679, the Castle is the oldest building in South Africa. It replaced an older fort called the Fort de Goede Hoop, which was made out of clay and timber and built in 1652 by Jan van Riebeeck upon his arrival at the Cape.
The purpose of both were to act as a replenishment station for ships
passing the treacherous coast around the Cape on long voyages between
the Netherlands and the Dutch East Indies.

Sunrise over Cape Mountains

There was this little bit of cloud over the Hottentot Mountains and as luck would have it, this morning, the sunrise was through this little bit of clouds which made it spectacular.

Here is some photos for you to enjoy.

These photos were taken with my Canon Powershot SX20 at various focal lengths, f stops and exposure times.  Click on each image to enlarge.
