Table Mountain

After Robben Island (and lunch on the waterfront, which I’ll come back to later), we took the funicular up Table Mountain.

In the above photo you can see Robben Island on the right.

It’s pretty awesome up there and the paths extend much farther across the top of the mountain than I had expected. There are varying levels of hikes you can take to the top, as well, though we didn’t have the time to do this.

On a normal day I have problems with direction, but here I was at a total loss. Because the sun remains in the northern part of the sky, I think I kept forgetting this and getting turned around. I got into many an argument with an eighth grader over which way was south and which was north. We were both wrong, always.
