Cape Town, a children's city holiday

Cape Town, a children’s city holiday

My girls and I decided to be true tourists in Cape Town recently. However we were tourists in a gentle, no stress, pottering sort of way.

Cape Town’s Seapoint promenade has been renovated with funky artwork and a beautiful long walkway all the way to the V & A Waterfront. We hired city bikes in Seapoint and very leisurely cycled the route. We stopped to interact with all the artwork and for me to take a million pictures.

Cape Town is struggling with a terrible drought at the moment and, because of that, we had the most incredible blue skies and hot days, gorgeous for sightseeing and yes, for photography.

A day in my girls’ life would not be complete if it did not include a swim. Back at Seapoint at the end of our cycle, we visited the four giant public pools that sit along the edge of the Atlantic ocean. They are beautiful and sparkling clean, with an original Art Deco archway entrance.  It did take a little bit of persuasion to get them going as these little island girls are used to much warmer waters but, in they went.

Next up on my blog I’ll post the pics from when Scott joined us and we went into the Cape countryside to cycle in the vineyards and swim in hidden dams.
