First Lightning Picture

On Sunday night we had a small thunderstorm here in Cape Town and I decided to go and try taking a picture of lightning again. I got three successful pictures. I have posted one of the best.

The lightning struck behind Table mountain.

The Greenpoint Stadium

I had to catch up on some blogging tonight so there is a few posts directly after each other. I hope to get some more pictures soon.

I have gone up to Signal hill again this weekend to get a picture of the progress of the demolition of the stadium and this is how it looks by now. Unfortunately the weather has been a bit cloudy lately so it isn't one of the best picture. In this picture you can see that more than half of the old stadium has been demolished already.

Cheese and Wine Festival

This weekend past, the annual Cheese and Wine Festival took place in Franschhoek.

We have been going every year for at least 4 years. It is a huge event with hundreds of stalls with samples of cheese and wine. There are also other stalls like the Wedgewood nougat stall, that never seems to be able to have enough stock, since everyone always wants some of it. All the stalls have products to sell and usually at very competitive prices. This event runs over 3 days and is always very popular.

We always buy a bottle or two of wine, some cheese and some breads. Then we go an enjoy it on the grass in the sun. Unfortunately, this year it was very cold and raining intermittently. So we had to use the tents that they set-up. It was still great.

If you ever find yourself in Cape Town at the end of April, organize to go and go early. They had to close the gates for non ticket holders by the afternoon this year.
