^^ End of hike jump!

How was your weekend? We decided to go all military planning on Cape town, thanks to everything closing at 13:00 on a Saturday here, I find it really inconvenient and strange, but we found the cutest little charity bookshop really close to us that sells books at a ridiculous price.  We went for a walk around our neighbourhood that made me wonder why humans have to make everything so ugly.  On Sunday we decided to try and go for a hike on the cloudiest most stormy day, just to get out of this horrible apartment, sometimes walking in nature can turn a bad weekend into a magical one.

First couple of days in Cape Town, South Africa

Its H-O-T, hot, hot, hot here! We’ve been melting from the heat here.  We came in here thinking, oh, its fall, it wont possibly be that hot here.  Boy, were we wrong! on the plus side my hair looks amazing.  The abundance of vitamin D seem to be making my hair shinier by the day! Carl, on the other hand is suffering from a light sunburn.

It’s been fun to walk around a different city, we been drinking water like fiends trying to hydrate as much as possible, thanks to the insane heat, but the skies are bluer than blue and the water looks like a blue carpet with diamonds strewn across it.  Can’t be mad at that!

^^ This little guy was such a little poser.  Maybe he was expecting food?

^^ A clear day and beautiful Table Mountain.

^^ Carl looks like he has a skip in his step and a swing in his arm.

^^ The waterfront is filled with beauty.

^^ I don’t know what’s the deal with this ice cream cone, but I like it.

^^ Carl’s beard is growing at record speed again.  The lack of vitamin D in Dublin, made his beard stop growing.  We googled it, its a real thing!

^^ Green juice break.

^^ This sushi was amazing and was at the Food Lovers Eatery.  If you are ever in Cape Town you have to check it out.  They even had Dr Pepper!

^^ The land of proteas.

^^ I’m not sure what this means, but my guess is that its got something to do with sea point.  You can’t see it in this photo, but their hair connects.

^^ Lighthouse in sea point.

Give me more blue skies.
