The next morning I was off for Simon¡¦s Town again. After my train ride I was off to unload my backpack and ready to Bike to Cape point with Rebecca and Linus. When I arrived at the Backpackers they had found a ride and saved us the 7 hr uphill, into wind bike ride to the point. To tell you the truth I was not that disappointed when I heard the news. I could still feel my leg muscles from the hike up Table Mountain and lugging my pack around for a week.

So, we were off to the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point. The entire area is a nature reserve and is without a doubt breathtaking. We started by hiking along False Bay and taking in the view of the Atlantic and Indian Ocean. You can actually see where the currents meet. (See photo). From there we were off to the point. To our surprise when we reached the top we found the SA Navy testing there equipment. Talk about boys with toys, it was great. They had full on ships, loaded to the tits with equipment to blow the crap out of a rock in the water. So, for an hour I sat and watched the military in action and cheered as they destroyed there target fº

I find myself short on words when it comes to describing the beauty of Cape point, so I will leave the rest of the story up to my photosfº
