Table Mountain

Rising 1086 metres above the Atlantic and Indian oceans, Sarah and I took advantage of the late afternoon sun on our first day in Cape Town to take the revolving cable car up to the summit of Table Mountain.   We had just landed in Cape Town after a very bumpy ride and my first zebra sighting!  It was a perilous and spectacular 2.5 minutes ride to see the 360 degree views of the entire city, Robben Island, and the wild coast.
