On Land and Sea

Being a tourist in your home town is so much fun, especially when you live in a city as beautiful as Cape Town. We were so busy touristing this weekend, I need another 2 days off to recover.

Saturday morning we were up early for a short walk along the pipe track on Table Mountain. The views in the early morning when everything is clear are magnificent. This walk is suitable for everyone, no climbing but with beautiful views of the mountain and the sea.


On Sunday we were very graciously taken by a good friend for a boat trip. We went from the Waterfront to Clifton and back past Robben Island. The weather was so good, even the whales were out enjoying a perfect Sunday afternoon.

With a view like this, you can clearly see why it's called Table Mountain!

As you can see the 2010 Soccer Stadium is coming on very well.

My mother-in-law Pat had a wonderful time on boat, I'll be very sad to see her leave tomorrow.

While I had such a wonderful weekend, there were those who spent the weekend fighting fires in Sommerset West. Thank you to all the firefighters, many of which are volunteers, for risking your lives to save our city. We really do appreciate you and pray for your safety.

Jeremiah 17: 7-8

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. He will be like a tree planted by the water."

It is not your business to succeed, but to do what is right : when you have done so, the rest lies with God.
C.S. Lewis
