SWF – A day of rainbows in South Africa

01 Rainbow R44 W Western Cape ZA (800x600)

The day after my birthday I left Hermanus and drove along the southern coast through Kogelbrg Biosphere Reserve. It was a day of cloudy skies and intermittent rain.

02 Rainbow approaching Betsy's Bay R44 W Western Cape ZA (800x600)

Yet I was blessed all day with rainbows. More than I could take pictures of while driving.

03 Gaelyn at Cape of Good Hope sign M65 S Table Mt NP Cape Pennisula ZA (800x600)

I made it to the Cape of Good Hope that afternoon.

04 Rainbow over False Bay from Moonglow B&B Glen Cairn Cape Pennisula ZA (800x600)

And spent the night at Moonglow B&B in Glen Cairn overlooking False Bay.

Rainbow afternoon—
lifts my spirits, lifts the gloom

Congrats on reaching the Cape of Good Hope. I'm so jealous.

Great rainbow pics.

Nice rainbows leading to your goal. That would be a neat place to be. If I recall my history, its discovery by European sailors was very important.

Better than those beautiful rainbows is you in front of the Cape of Good Hope sign!

The Cape Peninsula is beautiful and any place with view over False Bay is worth it. I hope it was a quiet day at the Cape Of Good Hope sign cause I have been there when people were queing to take that photo.

The Cape is always beautiful. I like all the jewelry and clothes that you bought for yourself while there. The blue really suits you. Diane
