A boat trip around the harbour of Cape Town,South Africa

Click on photos to enlarge
The summer returned for the weekend and I decided to play the tourist for the afternoon sauntering around in the V&A Waterfront, taking a boat trip, nipping into an African art shop, licking an Haagen Dasz icecream while listening to a local band and paying tourist prices for a glass of wine and tapas with view toward the new stadium and the sunset over the Atlantic ocean Ah to be in Cape Town when summer is there !

  1. I just love that seal, I want him on my desk at work. Great pic!

  2. Hello Helen in Sweden
    You may download for your desktop its here just for you :)
    BTW Seals are very common sight in the Cape town harbour but this one made me smile by the way he was lying there :)

  3. Absolutely perfect desktop background, and tons better than my boring old EPiServer work one - thank you! Keep up the good work, I'm already looking forward to the photos of the stadium opening ceremony, whenever that'll be. There must be fireworks planned for that one...
