I spent just four days in Cape Town for my husband's brother's wedding. I was rushed and tried to think of something that said Cape Town and South Africa to me. The mountains loom over you every where but there is a challenge. I have a £500 camera that I was going to put on auto timer and walk away. I am not allowed out on my own with the camera even when I am holding it. This meant some places like markets and beaches were out. Just an invitation to get mugged.
I wanted mountain, the memorial is half way up part of the mountain. There were only a few tourists and this meant we could include my darling husband. He is on the lion watching his crazy wife. The fact he did not fall off from laughing as I sprinted very awkwardly up the stairs is astounding. He thought someone may take pity on me and offer to press the button but I got the shot. Just glad I wore red.
