Mountain range

Standing tall, at 1 km high is Table Mountain, how outstanding,
To the top a ride via a cable car trip, you can see all, even a harbor ship,
Hikes from below all around the Mountain can be done, for all to astound,
Certain days reveal a Table cloth, the wind blows and clouds appear from the rear,
The top is flat, as if carved for a specific reason, and the mountain is available all season,
On the one side we have the 12 apostles, but can be seen from the cable station ride,
Once at the top, you can walk the flat surface and view the Cape Peninsula like a hawk,
The beautiful oceans around the Cape trip, change from cold to warm at the very tip,

Ocean and beaches

The white sand beaches follow the curvature of the peninsula, and all in tourist reaches,
Cold seas in the West side, to warm water, in the East; you will enjoy the feast, and ride,
From long white sand beaches, Long beach, be careful as it is stormy and the wind is strong
To naughty beaches like Sandy bay, with nudists from Mandy, to you odd dirty old man Andy,
Surf is always up on Blouberg beach, somewhat cold, but surfers know it matters none, as told,
Strand beach is flat, and warm, many a person on the beach playing, swimming and some just sat.

Sunsets and sunrises

Sun rises in the East from the Boland mountains and sets behind Table Mountain, with many surprises,
Sunset from the mountains top can be seen, or from the beach below, has so much to show.

Wine routes and picnics

There are 560 wine farms in and around Cape Town, renowned for their quality wines and vines,
Lunches and dinner served at these places are 5 star, and yet but a short trip by your hired car,
Or simply take your own picnic, or order baskets, and share with family and friends, on lawns, as shown,
Beauty of these farms, and historical, with back drops of mountain ranges, stunning old charms.
