Most Pleasantly Situated

The Cape Peninsula is full of quaint towns and picturesque beaches.  The towns definitely all embrace their nautical settings.  When were in towns like Hout Bay and Simon’s Town (home of the South African Navy), I kept thinking that these are places that my Mom would love to visit because of their beautiful harbors and perfect sailing breezes.  We also drove Chapman’s Peak Road along the coast, which lives up to its reputation of being one of the most beautiful drives in the world. The amazing thing is that along the Cape Penninsula, you find rocky coastline adjacent to white, sandy beaches.  I don’t know how they got so lucky, but I don’t know of a place more perfect in geological and geographical terms.  All of that natural beauty plus seals and penguins (also with marauding bands of baboons that people have special home security teams to deal with).  Here are some pictures that should speak for themselves about all of the beautiful sights of the peninsula:
