Saturday Spot: Where’s Wally Was All Over Cape Town…

October 15th, 2012 · 3 Comments

When our readers suggested places that Where’s Wally could go wandering in Cape Town we just couldn’t help ourselves, we took him on a little trip. Now we live in the land of “we don’t often have a working car,” but last week for a couple of days we had a car and we were off…

Top of Table Mountain went to the top of our wish list but we will need to do some training!!! The whole family has never been actually been there, time to get on those walking shoes!!! Though I am not sure who would elect to carry Wally all that way!!!

Se7en + 1 places our readers suggested that we take Where’s Wally:

  1. Long Street… because we love the “vibe-ey” street that runs from the top to the bottom of our city!!!
  2. On the Cobra Ride at Ratanga Junction… We have never even thought of going there before!!!
  3. Red City Tourist Bus… Watch this spot, the father person and I have tickets…
  4. GreenMarket Square… Have to take our kids there this summer!!! It is a Saturday spot you will love!!!
  5. Moullie Point Lighthouse – Got there!!! And a great excuse to pop into our favourite park…
  6. Boulder’s Beach: We love that beach but haven’t been for ages!!!
  7. Rhodes Memorial: Fantastic!!! It is always such a good outing!!!
  8. Kalk Bay Harbor: There is no excuse for not getting Wally to our favourite spot – apart from the hideous traffic situation right now!!!

And we were off…
