Cape Town – V&A Waterfront and surrounds

We walked to the Waterfront towards midday. Lunch was a plate of fresh mussels from the west coast.

We watched yachts taking tourists around the harbour and out into Table Bay.

This little train takes visitors and children around the Waterfront. The man with the flag controls the speed and stops the train to allow pedestrians to pass.

These life size statues are of South Africans who have won the Nobel Peace Prize. From left to right: Albert Luthuli, Desmond Tutu, FW de Klerk and Nelson Mandela.

Watching over the statues of our famous leaders, is Table Mountain.

We walked back to the Marina admiring the gardens and the views.

Later we went with friends, to a local Greek restaurant which was having a special wine tasting event.

This part of the city has lovely Edwardian homes.

The wine farmer gave a talk about his wines from the farm called Groote Post. It was a dairy farm before they planted vineyards.

Each course was matched with a wine from Groote Post.

Greek food and South African wine go well together.

After much food and wine we took an Uber taxi back to the Marina and a good night’s sleep.
