Pammy on Table Mountain on a perfect day!
I love summer in the Cape. Somehow everyone seems more happy when the sun shines! Including me! In Cape Town it feels like our summer only really starts around Xmas – finally everyone comes out to play! In December Cape Town starts becoming vibey – a combination of foreigners and locals are around and there is a real buzz. To me it is a time of exploring, of sitting at side walk cafes, of enjoying sundowner picnics on the beach and of catching up with friends who jet in from all over the world.
This blog is going to simply be a picture essay of some of my favourite fun moments from this summer living in one of the most beautiful regions in the world – the Cape! It is also a great excuse to show you some of my favourite photos from summer!
