A mother to many, a local and a favourite to thousands of tourists that embraces her shores. It is not without reason that Cape Town is ranked as one of the prettiest cities in the world.

Walking on the V&A Waterfront the other day I experienced all these vibrant colours surrounding me. Turning the corner to pay a visit to some famous sculptures I am greeted by what? Yes, a red hot thumbs up man keeping guard over the stately figures seeking some shade. Quite a contrast – and this made me smile. 🙂
While standing there and turning my head towards Table Mountain I am greeted by the bluest of blue skies crowning our famous mountain while keeping her ever present watch over the Mother City.
After rounding some more corners I stumbled upon the towering white ferris wheel which left me feeling like a dwarf. Just the type of confirmation I needed that you live life in the slow lane down here. Observing the city as you go round and round ….
