Christmas in Cape Town: Road Trip to Cape Point

It was our last full day in South Africa and we planned a road trip to Cape Point and all the scenery in between. The adventure started when we called down to the front desk to have our car pulled around. The hotel here doesn't have any parking space so they take your car and park it on some street or car park somewhere - we were advised to call at least 15 minutes ahead to make sure they had enough time to get the car. So, we did and then waited, and waited ... 35 minutes later, our car finally arrived and we were on our way.

The good news is that the rest of the trip went very well (we didn't get lost even once!!) and we saw some really lovely countryside and coastline. We capped off the day with a stop at the Chapman's Peak Hotel for their specialty (fried calamari) and some of the best seafood we've had in a while. The weather was perfect, the food was perfect and the wine was perfect!

Here are a few of the perfect photos from the drive.

We couldn't figure out why the traffic suddenly slowed to a crawl.
Thank goodness we didn't open the windows! :)
