Cape Town’s St James beach – Flickr pic of the day
“What surprised me about my trip to Cape Town, which I think this photo demonstrates, is that so many beautiful locations are all in one place.
“In the United States, if I wanted to see mountains like the ones you have in Cape Town, I could, but I would have to drive for hours. The same goes for beautiful beaches, which in the US are also hours away in the opposite direction.
“But to have everything right there in one spot together – that’s what makes Cape Town special.”
Want to see more of Cape Town’s beautiful landscapes? Why not take a rail trip from the central business district of Cape Town all the way through to Simon’s Town? The journey takes about an hour and a quarter, and takes you through the fascinating, ever-changing beauty that surrounds the Mother City.
Do you have images of Cape Town you’d like to share with us? We’d love you to join the Cape Town. Live it. Love it. Flickr group!
