It was a gorgeous late winter day here in the Cape Town area today with blue skies and mild temperatures. We did make it out to Bloemendal wine estate for our lunch. The restaurant is not up high enough to provide the panoramic views shown on their home page, though. The chardonnay that I had with my lunch was quite nice. My friend Marlien is visiting as well, and we made it out to the V&A (named for Queen and her son Prince Alfred) Waterfront by late afternoon.
