Our friend from France is visiting us and we decided to spend the day in Kalk Bay and after that we would go to Kirstenbosch.
It was a glorious, sunny spring day and early morning we headed to Kalk Bay. Deon and I have visited this beautiful bay several times previously, but it was again a worthwhile visit. What a beautiful place this is. There are interesting little antique shops, glamorous clothing shops; coffee shops; restaurants; interesting alleys and of course, the colourful harbour. We also saw whales close to the beach.
We stumbled upon a quaint restaurant, called From Cape to Cuba, where we enjoyed good food. Deon ordered Calamari with Spicy Rice and the rest of the company ordered Fish and Chips – the fish fried in a crisp batter. The restaurant is colourful, with many crystal chandeliers; colourful furniture; Cuban music, waitresses dressed in colourful skirts and flowers in the hair – a must to see.
Then we were off to Kirstenbosch, the most beautiful garden in Africa where we even braved the Tree Canopy Walkway. It was a most enjoyable day.
