Cape Town Photo Diary: Clifton & Chapmans Peak Drive

Greetings from Cape Town! I thought I would have had a few posts in by now, but haven’t found much time to sit down behind my macbook and gratefully so, as a “technology timeout” is always good. So here is the first of many Cape Town posts to come.

This was back in our first week here on a particularly hot day, we took a drive over to one of my favourite beaches, Clifton 4th. It is nestled on cliffs right below Table Mountain with soft white sand and pretty awesome views of the Atlantic Seaboard and surrounding mountains.

After a few hours in the sun, we had a delish tapas lunch up the road in Camps Bay, before driving home along Chapmans Peak, probably one of the most epic drives in the world – a 9km narrow winding road with a sheer drop into the ocean on one side and massive mountain face on the other. Our timing was good too, because the following week it rained heavily and the road was (and still is) closed due to severe road damage!

I guess after living somewhere for most of your life, you tend to take the beauty for granted, so documenting it all on this trip back has reopened my eyes as to how stunning this city really is. Stay tuned for more :)
