It rained when we went to Kirstenbosch.

I had been looking forward to exploring

I am sure it won't be long
before we are back.

    I've been to 'Kirstenbosch' and loved it staying in Cape Town. We've been a few times and hope to return soon.
    Love your photos too so thanks for sharing. ;D

  2. what a shame, but it looks beautiful even in the rain x

  3. Fortunately we reach the safety of the shop and survived the worst of the downpour thus enabling MrsM to make some essential purchases ...

  4. Everything happens for a reason ...
