Yesterday we rented a car and drove down to Cape Point (where some people say the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet. Except they’re wrong and the two actually meet a little further east at Cape Agulhas, the Southern most tip of the African continent) and the Cape of Good Hope (the South Western most point on the African Continent).
It was a beautifully sunny day, perfect for a drive down the coast and we were joined for the journey by our friend Joe (who we’d been hanging out with from our hostel). We all got an early morning hair cut (my first, and badly needed, of the trip) and hopped in the car to set off. We stopped a few times on the way down (Hout Bay, etc) to admire the views.
Along the way down, we stopped by an ostrich farm and bought some seeds to feed these hunger little buggers.
When we arrived at the tip of Africa at the Cape of Good Hope, we were met by gale-force winds. So much for having had our hair done in the morning…we look incredibly wind blown in all the pictures.
On the drive back from Cape Point, we stopped in Simon’s Town to hang out with some penguins. We also had a tasty dinner at a cute seafood restaurant in town. A very successful day around the Cape!
