Putting the ‘service into customer service’ (a novel experience accustomed as we are to Seychelles) we were up early to meet the car hire man who picked us up to take us to the office -at the bottom of our road, so a short journey then.
As you had to pay for each additional driver and it was a manual (eek) the other one got sole control of our kick ass white Chevrolet Spark and I played co-driver Just as well seeing how I clung to the dashboard as the car climbed the extremely steep road back to Upperbloem with a stupid stop sign at its crest, testing the other one’s bite skills and my bladder. We both passed.
Typically, clear blue skies were in abundance except for the big grey cloud dolloped over Table Mountain, our intended morning stop. So instead we brought our afternoon jaunt forward and made a beeline for Boulders Beach with a return back to Table Mountain via Chapman’s Peak.
