We arrived into Cape Town with thick cloud on table Mountain but woke up on Saturday morning to clear skies and a lovely breakfast at Guest House
With bright skies I went out to take some more photos of the coloured houses
Rayna and I decided we would get a train along the coast, we were advised that it might be dangerous but it wasn’t and my only complaint was that the windows could have been cleaner so i could see out of the window better
Our first stop was Kalk Bay
We made a couple of purchases – more in another post of the delightful Michel
And then borded the train again from St James to Simonstown to Boulders Beach to see the penguins
Maybe these images will become a new Journal Quilt
The next day – more photos of Table Mountain
And then goodbye to Rayna
I then went on to see the Shre shre (not the right spelling) exhibition and do a bit of shopping
before meeting up with Pam Stallebrass who lives near Cape Town and will be having a stand at Festival of Quilts next month
Pam took me to the botanical gardens in Cape Town to see the giant protea plants
then on to another harbour
and then on to the airport for the long flight home.
So I have loads more ideas for more quilts but no time to make them as I need to get my new book finished for Festival of Quilts, and the new kits.
