Guess what everybody? We climbed to the top of table Mountain!
It was really exhausting, but worth it!
Table Mountain overlooks Cape Town and is flat like a tabletop.
Everyone said that this climb was a “must-do,” so we decided that we would take on the challenge.
In one part, it was terribly hot from the glare of the sun, and then when you reach a huge shadow in the gorge, it is freezing cold. So you must be prepared
When we were finished, we were soaked in sweat.
At the top, you get a beautiful view of Cape Town, Camp’s Bay, and the Cape of Good Hope, where we had been the day before.
After we tore our eyes away from this extraordinary view, we ate a peaceful lunch in a restaurant at the top of the mountain.
Then we took the tram back down to the parking lot.
It was a great accomplishment!
The rest of the day we relaxed and had a good time – with a big steak dinner! During a two-hour load shedding experience – which I told you about in a previous post.
We are having a good time – I hope you’re having a good time, too, reading my posts.

There was a restaurant at the top?? 🙂 That made me laugh! In NZ sometimes to get people to climb a really step hill or small mountain you’d lie and say “Hey there’s a cafe at the top!” Of course there wasn’t but some people would believe it! But in your case there really was! Brilliant!
Hi Nicki, Nice to hear from you! The restaurant wasn’t much to look forward to, actually. The food wasn’t that good. But we still had a good time! LOL!!!
Really?! LOL!!!:) Thats sort of a bummer when the person who got tricked finds out afterwards!
Such beautiful pictures and an amazing journey! I’m enjoying the tidbits of history and culture that you include in your posts.
Lots of memories to last a lifetime… wishing you good luck as you continue your trek.
