A Beautiful Cape Afternoon

Last week we had the pleasure of a beautiful and rain free winter's afternoon at the waterfront. My friend needed to be there and I played taxi . It was a wonderful unplanned afternoon and very unusual for a Monday. But aren't some of the best adventures unplanned?

The water lay smooth and glassy in the harbour. 

We enjoyed some of the best chocochinos ever.

Robust and sleepy Cape Fur Seals lazed about peacefully, hardly noticing those who stopped to stare and take photos.

A cheeky Cape Gull perched nearby and chattered away noisily as if begging for some food or reprimanding those working on a nearby boat.

We were lucky enough to have a quick whirlwind trip around the 2 Oceans Aquarium. Tropical fish with their beautiful colours and patterns never cease to amaze me.

The predator's tank was mesmerising with Ragged-tooth Sharks swimming peacefully by.... as if to the music playing in the background. I think I could have sat there for hours.

The children enjoyed the viewing tunnel enormously, watching and waiting excitedly for sharks and rays to swim around the corner.

All in all a wonderful and care free afternoon!
