Travel Photo Thursday – Table Mountain’s ‘Tablecloth’

Table Mountain

Table Mountain

The day after we arrived in Cape Town, a spectacularly beautiful day, with few clouds, our guide, Ian, insisted that we visit Table Mountain. We had other ideas but eventually decided to follow his advice.

The following day, the day we wanted to go, puffy, white clouds blanketed the mountain. Ian said it was its Tablecloth.

This is my submission to this week’s Budget Travelers Sandbox Travel Photo Thursday series. Be sure to check out other photo and story entries on their website!

  2. Ha ha, good analogy. Bet you’re glad you didn’t go up there in the mist. Not much of a view. 🙂

  6. Wow! It’s fascinating how low the clouds are; really does look like a tablecloth a little.

  8. I love those jagged cliffs. They remind of the Hawaiian mountains (where I grew up). The clouds (oops… tablecloth) add an extra allure. This is indeed a truly beautiful place.

    Those clouds look unreal back there. Seems like if you walk up there, you can touch them.

  11. Good point. I hadn’t thought of that.

  12. Yes, it does. I’m sure if we had gone up the mountain that day, we would have been able to.

  13. It sure is, Sherry! I love jagged cliffs as well. Have not been to Hawaii but i know it’s quite beautiful.

  14. Isn’t it? Also shows that on vacation, we shouldn’t procrastinate.

  15. They were pretty low, like you could almost touch them. Or frosting on a cake.

  16. Thanks, Cheryl. They sure do.

  17. I guess we were lucky. Not windy at all when we were there.
    Yes, CPT is like a picture postcard, unbelievably beautiful.

  18. Sure does!

  19. Not at all. Wouldn’t have been able to see a thing.

  20. Thanks, Muza-chan!

  21. Gorgeous! Glad you listened to Ian… It still looks lovely with its tablecloth but spectacular on its own. Wonderful! 🙂

  22. Me too. Ian’s our hero. We listened to every suggestion he made after that!
    And Table Mountain is definitely spectacular on its own.
