Capetown Cameos #3

To finish up the Capetown trip, I will share a few pictures of the third day. After another wonderful sunrise from the roof deck,

and breakfast on the pretty little front patio, we trundled off to Woodstock, in search of three of the top Galleries in the Cape, which are fortunately all in one building, a converted industrial space that was absolutely perfect for the display of art. Goodman Gallery had a fabulous review of some of South Africas iconic contemporary artists from the last 7 decades, and it was a treat seeing works by artists one can often only enjoy in textbooks.

Then back to explore the charming De Waterkant district, which has such a fascinating vibe and unique character. It is such a delight wandering through the narrow cobbled streets, browsing through eclectic shops and cafes,

and ending up in the Cape Quarter, at a fab Italian Restaurant.

Then, reluctantly off to pack and get to the airport, for the return flight to PE. A pretty end to a blissful interlude,

and both Julie and I can't wait to go back with our husbands to share this magical spot with them!
