Memories of Cape Town

Memories of Cape Town

Have just arrived in Cape Town on a perfect day! I had to drop Steve off in the city for a meeting, so we had breakfast at Tashas at the V&A Waterfront. Strolling across to his meeting, this was the view! While ambling around the shops waiting for him, I came across these beautiful flowers. It took me back some 30 odd years, when I was a young air hostess in my early 20’s. Every time I night stopped in Cape Town, I would head to the flower market in town and buy a few bunches of flowers to take home. The market was full of very interesting characters. I mostly bought from a lady who had a character as colorful as her flowers. She always made me laugh and  I wonder where she is now? I didn’t  have to close my eyes to recall this precious memory…….. I just smelt the flowers…….

Arriving at our apartment later, I opened the door, saw the sea and headed for the patio. There it was, as beautiful as ever. Table mountain, no wonder Capetonian’s always talk about the mountain. So do I now!
