Day 713 – City view

Having (finally) renewed our Kirstenbosch passes, we took advantage of the early-bird entry policy and entered Kirstenbosch early.

There were some decent views across the hazy city awakening beneath us.

In this image: Athlone Power Station (two chimneys), Newlands Brewery (steam plume), Newlands Cricket Stadium (floodlights) and Newlands Rugby Stadium (big non-descript block to the left of the Brewery)

A bit of a stroll, plenty of plants, some (sadly rather average) bird experiences and a touch of fresh air (look how high we were above the city smog) made for a great start to the morning. Less so the notification that pinged through while we were there about the imminent Stage 4 loadshedding.
