Saturday Spot: A Sea Point Promenade An Easy Amble…

July 22nd, 2013 · 2 Comments

I am reclaiming our weekends… busy-ness begone… books, ambles and pottering are in vogue around here… This weekend’s amble took us to the Sea Point Pavillion for an amble. This has to be Cape Town’s premier spot for combining ambling and people watching. Yes, there are people doing furious amounts of exercise… those are the ones that you watch… and then their are others that are ambling…

This is an easy walk, with soft-serve ice-creams at one end and mini-golf or Putt-Putt at the other end… And in between heaps to look at…

You can jump in anywhere along the way and walk the full length… or just as far as the nearest bench…

Great rolling lawns, filled with folk playing – soccer…

And gyms for energetic types and climbing frames for folk with energetic kids…

    Hay Katherine Marie, it is a fabulous place for an amble… fairly quiet on a cold winter amble, but in summer it can be fabulously busy!!! Hope you are all enjoying your summertime!!!
