They’ve been spreading their “Magic of Compassion” all over the Peninsula by mobilising #BlanketWings, a huge blanket donation drive to bring winter warmth to the Mother City’s less fortunate residents, and now Cape Town Angels will round off their virtuous efforts with a heavenly final drop-off event at the chic Alexander Bar & Café on Friday 31 May, 2013.
My pictures were taken while hiking to Tartarus Cave above Boyes Drive. It was a spectacular walk because of the clouds and a rainbow. As we arrived at different lookout points on the mountain, the views over False Bay and Simon’s Town changed.

What better way to end a perfect summer’s day than with a twilight surf?
Fancy a spot of whale watching? Maybe a couple of hours of seal spotting? How about a leisurely afternoon with playful penguins? If this sounds like your cup of tea, then a day out along the False Bay coastline, into Kalk Kay, Boulders Beach and Cape Point is just what you’re looking for. Give yourself a full day, because you won’t want to rush through this experience.

Head north out of Cape Town on the R27, then take the R307 turn off and drive for around 70km, and you’ll arrive in quaint Darling – a picturesque village in the heart of the West Coast. A day trip to this idyllic community of vineyards and canola fields is a must for city slickers looking for a change of scenery.
Hundreds of Capetonians came together for a worthy cause at the vibrant Uthando Benefit Concert at the Willowbridge Barnyard Theatre in Tyger Valley on Youth Day, June 16, 2012.
Mid winter: We’ve had two weeks of constant sunshine and warm weather, and evenings see everyone out promenading on the Sea Point beachfront.
I have an obsession with doing things differently, which normally makes me really annoying to travel with, but occasionally I find something really cool, like my long weekend in the Robertson Winelands with my girlfriend.
It’s Wednesday, Cape Town fanatics (and tomorrow is a public holiday), so I ask you: Where would you rather be today?
Recently, the inaugural Nightjar Adventurer 2013 Awards took place at the Cape Union Mart Adventure Centre at Canal Walk. Well over 100 adventure enthusiasts packed out the venue, having read the adventurers’ stories over the past weeks but having no idea what to expect next. Well, even their best guesses would have missed the mark: the evening turned into a comedy hour, with the speakers and winners brilliantly recounting some of their more amusing adventuring mishaps.
It’s the season of new beginnings, romance, burgeoning sunshine and thrilling adventures in gorgeous #lovecapetown and where better to experience of all these amazing things than at our top seaside shopping and lifestyle destination, the ever popular V&A Waterfront?

I don’t often experience the sensual seafood tastes of a restaurant in Cape Town, so naturally I jumped at the opportunity to review the impressive menu at Live Bait in Kalk Bay on Saturday 27 April, 2013. With its spectacular views of Kalk Bay Harbour (one of its walls is actually the breakwater of the harbour) and the Atlantic Ocean, this seaside eatery is the perfect lunch spot. Patrons lucky enough to get a table at the floor-to- ceiling windows facing the ocean will spot a seal or two frolicking in the waves.
