Day 4

City tour

We started a city tour with a trip up Signal Hill where I took this picture of Keith in front of Table Mountain


After our journey up Signal Hill I took Keith on a visit to the Mount Nelson Hotel 
In the above picture Keith can be seen sitting in the hotel's Old Colonial restaurant.

After the Mount Nelson we travelled up to the Lion Battery where we saw the Noon Gun being fired for shot number 62043. I managed to get the firing cap of the shot for Keith as can be seen for the below pictures.



After our trip to the Lion Battery we did a tour of the city centre as well as the Atlantic seaboard. Thereafter we returned to the Waterfront where we had a light lunch at Harries Pancake House before I bade Keith farewell as he boarded the catamaran to pay a visit to Robben Island.

Keith was an interesting person to travel with. He was a self made man who had done a lot of traveling all over the world and some of the stories and ideas that he shared with me in this regard were very interesting to hear. You can see more of Keith's travels by clicking here. Together we explored Cape Town and the winelands and I think that overall Keith came out of this tour enjoying South Africa to the full.

Thanks for joining me Keith.
