Cape Town Rugby Festival on February 6 at 4.15 PM in this gorgeous glowing Stadium

Unfortunately I am not able to be at the Soccer Festival
 but I bought my ticket for the Cape Town Rugby Festival  at the Cape Town Stadium today and choose my seat with great care ! Believe it or not but I have never been inside any stadium
This will be my first ever !
You can buy your tickets here

Just read that the Castle Lager Cape Town Tens will join CT Stadium Rugby Festival as well
as the friendly match between our local teams: Boland Inv. XV vs Stormers.
and there is live entertainment by Flat Stanley and others

This is the water course which seperates the golf course from the urban park
it is connected by narrow canals to the other water features

BTW there was no cleaning going on today (friday)
So I am still looking at a half cleaned facade

A drive to Kalk Bay then via Chapmans Peak back to Green Point

Was sight seeing today with friends who are visiting South Africa
A fantastic view toward Kalk Bay
 Boyes Drive (from where this pic is taken) offers some of the best scenery in Cape Town.

Kalk Bay
is a fishing village on the coast of False Bay it is a suburb of greater Cape Town.

Kalk Bay has a buzzing fish market on the harbour
where you can watch the fishermen in traditional wooden boats bringing in their catch
like kingklip, john dory, bream, and dorado

 View of Hout Bay from
Chapmans Peak Drive, named after John Chapman who came to Cape Town in 1607. He was the mate on a British ship that was sent to Hout Bay to investigate the possibility of building a harbour there.
It's a really spectacular drive along a very narrow road with stunning views out onto the Atlantic ocean.
This road links Noordhoek to Hout Bay and Cape Town.
It was in the Foodbarn in Noordhoek where we had a great lunch
and even though it was Teusday the place was packed
but I had booked a week ago so that was ok

This is not the most beautiful angle of the Cape Town Stadium but that is my opinion ofcourse ...

It looks grey after the sun has set and the basket shape ..
Nope this sight doesn't set my heart on fire :(

If you look at this photo thenyou will see where I was standing here
They haven't switched on those green lights for a long time.... which would have bathed this paving in green light
