Hout Bay flora – Flickr pic of the day


This gorgeous view of the Cape’s flora was taken by our Cape Town. Live it. Love it. group member Brian Allen aka brianmka.

Brian says, “The picture was from Chapman’s Peak Drive near Hout Bay. Even though the road was closed, we made it as far as we could, and still saw some beautiful sights.

“As for me, I’m from the United States, and last year I had two very good friends living in Cape Town, both Americans as well. I thought I would never have a better opportunity than this to visit South Africa!

“I saved up for a few months, knowing nothing more about Cape Town than the fact that my friends and Table Mountain were there, and in December I made the 20+ hour flight from Washington, DC to Cape Town. I was blown away by the natural beauty of the area, and I can see now why my friend originally planned to live there for six months but has stayed for over three years (with no plans to leave).

“Cape Town is such a beautiful, beautiful place, and I am jealous of those who get to see it every day.”

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!
