The day I arrived to Cape Town the weather was gloomy. The rain was falling and the sky was dense with clouds and fog. When I landed I was told that you usually could see the mountains once you walk out of the airport doors, but I was only able to see gray. Despite the clouds Cape Town still look beautiful.
While driving from the airport to the Sacred Mountain Lodge there was a point where we were close enough to the mountains that the clouds lifted and I was able to finally see an outline of mountains. They were large and looming. As we got closer and closer the mountains became more visible, and so did their beauty. These mountains are plush with green vegetation and trees, trees that reminded me of the tree from the opening scene of the Lion King. Don’t know if it’s the same tree or if i am just too excited about being in Africa.

Before we left the lodge we all went to go see the beach that was a short walk away. We came at the perfect time, the sun was just about to set and the day was clear. Once we got to the edge of the beach some of us stayed taking photographs, some went on the beach and others geocahced. The view was so spectacular that I don’t think the photographs any of us took do it any justice.
