Colourful Cape Town

I’m a week late for entering Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Vibrant Colours but that’s because we were lucky enough to have been able to take a much-needed week’s break in one of Africa’s (and perhaps the World’s?) most beautiful cities – Cape Town.

Unbelievably I forgot to take my camera – I was so annoyed with myself! So some of these pictures I took with my phone (I’ve still not mastered that skill) and the rest are from our trip to Cape Town in January.

We stayed in an apartment at Whale Watchers in Muizenberg where the views from our bedroom window were breathtaking.

I could wake up to this every morning

Oh to wake up to this scene every morning!


So bright and colourful and cheerful

I love all the small shops and alleyways in and around Kalk Bay.




Of course a visit to The Brass Bell in Kalk Bay is compulsory – the view, the ambience and the cocktails are superb.

  1. Like your pictures! There are so many little things to discover in them – like the Zebra skin and the question why there is a garbage bin after every second meter in the fifth picture ..


  2. The beach huts are gorgeous, many have been renovated over the years, but they were there in the 1970s rather tired looking and not in a straight line thus providing good shelter from the wind that got up every afternoon. Glad to see the Brass Bell still going, I had many a lobster thermidor there – it was our celebration restaurant.
