Photos of a sweltering sunday in Sea Point and Green Point , Cape Town

The day started with Jive Big Walk a charity 10 KM walk
 from the forecourt of the new Cape Town Stadium

It was close to sunset when I drove to the Noon Gun
to see if I could get a shot of the stadium :)
Not much luck there ... too many huge trees obscuring the view

but I did see the new path (not a road) in the Green Point Urban park

German Navy Open Day Saturday & Sunday 27/28 Feb
and the navy ships :
FGS Brandenburg,
 FGS Niedersachsen FGS Franfurt Am Main,
 SAS Amatola
 SAS Spioenkop
 in the V&A Waterfront harbour
which I hade seen arriving the other day

This is Queens Road, in Sea Point
 which is adjacent to Green Point

walked right down to this little beach along Beach  Road
See the drilling ship in the middle of the photo
I can see it from home too
see the second last image

Turned to my right and saw the moon rise in the sunset sky
You can see part of The Peninsula Hotel on the right

Turned right around and looked up Queens Road
to see Lions Head towering over the highrise of Sea Point

The drilling ship which has been moored there for at least a week now
to the left of the Ritz Hotel

Strangely enough....
the lights have been on friday, saturday and sunday night,
 the whole night....
