The day began sunny and cloudless, but when we got there, Table Mountain was almost entirely socked in by clouds. We enjoyed walking around some of the trails, but we only stayed on the mountain a little more than an hour.Photo: In Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden (http://www.places.co.za/html/kirstenbosch.html)Photo: King Protea, the South Africa national flower, in Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protea_cynaroides)Photo: Maiden's Cove, with part of Table Mountain.Photo: South African penguins at Boulder Beach.
