Table Mountain

This post chronicles our final day in Cape Town. On this bright day wherein joy mixed with sorrow, we rode the cable car up Table Mountain to enjoy a picnic dinner and watch the sunset. After Cape of Good Hope I couldn't help but assume that it wouldn't hold a candle to CoGH . . . but once again Cape Town surprised me with its breathtaking beauty.

One of my favorite things about traveling is comparing the scenery with the view from home. Let me just say, our beach doesn't exactly look like this.

Yet another gorgeous place to spend time with my dad. I can't even begin to express how blessed I am to have this amazing dad in my life. 

It's amazing how something simple as a sun setting the Earth rotating around the sun, can make the most spectacular view imaginable.

I will end my posts on this trip with a spectacular picture. This shot never ceases to amaze me.This is straight out of the camera, without the slightest bit of editing. It truly looks just like it did in real life. 

This earth is beautiful; yet corruption, sin and greed are around every corner. Still, God shows us His beautiful grace and mercy through the simplest things, like sunsets. They happen every single night and have for thousands of years.
