Flying the flag for BMF South Africa today at BMF Cheltenham by wearing the t-shirt they gave me when I was in Cape Town a few weeks ago and joined them on their Saturday session (which happened to be a hike up Table Mountain). Oh, to be back in that sunny beautiful city. You couldn’t have got much more of a contrast today; it was 2 degrees this morning and drizzly rain when we were running around in a muddy Pittville Park. Cheltenham is still beautiful though. And the sentiment is still the same; get outside.
Today was more driving to get to Cape Town. Again I hadn’t actually planned on getting to Cape Town today but I changed my mind while driving and decided to push on round the coast road (through some SPECTACULAR scenery) and get to Cape Town. And I was rewarded. I decided to book a hotel in the Seapoint area as I’d not stayed around there before and after getting upgraded to the biggest hotel suite I’ve been in yet (it’s bigger than my flat at home!) I dumped my stuff and got outside to explore and went for a stroll down the Atlantic Seaboard promenade, which is basically a massive seafront prom all the way along the coast for a few miles. Full of people running, skating, walking etc. My kind of place!! Loved the feel of it.
And THIS is the backdrop. Signal Hill, Lions Head and Table Mountain (which, in this photo, is underneath the big white cloud. Honest.). Beaut eh?
