Table mountain as seen from the V&A Waterfront.
It was a clear and windless day. We decided to take the cableway up Table Mountain.
We were advised to leave our car in the car park at the base of Table Mountain. From there we took a free shuttle bus to the cableway.
There was safe parking and we happily boarded the bus.
We were about half way up the mountain at the ticket office.
We bought our tickets and waited to board the cableway. More than 24 million people have travelled on the cableway.
Table Mountain was voted one of the New Seven Wonders of the World in 2011.
The cable car rotates while travelling up the mountain so we had a 360 degree view of our surroundings.
As we got closer to the top we saw the solid rock that the mountain is made of.
A beach viewed from Table Mountain.
These wild flowers could be seen all over the mountain.
The Cape Floral Kingdom has over 8500 species.
The views are breathtaking.
This is looking over the Twelve Apostles towards Cape Point.
A rich diversity of plants and animals are found on Table Mountain.
That is Robben Island in the distance.
We left the mountain and caught the shuttle bus back to the car park.
We drove back to the V&A Waterfront for lunch.

We finished the meal with Pavlova.
We strolled through the shopping centre admiring the Christmas decorations.
