A sunny Saturday at Kirstenbosch – Photos

Saturday, June 19 was a good day to be outdoors – if you happened to be in the Southern Suburbs, that is. While the overcast and windy conditions in the City Bowl made it a day for staying inside, on the other side of the mountain families flocked to the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden for a lazy day in the sun. Here are some images from the day. Photos by Ingrid Sinclair.
