Photographer's Note

If you are fit enough, this is the way you have to go. The last short stretch, from where you parked your car, to the peak of Cape Point Peak, one either walks or takes the rack railway (which I think only the very sick or elderly people should take).The rest of us should walk the walk and talk the talk.I think you will tell all your friends and enemies about your visit to Cape Point.

120 Steps crafted from natural stone lead to the old lighthouse on the Cape Point Peak, 250 metres above sea level.The lighthouse at Cape Point is the most powerful on the South African coast. It has a range of 63 kilometres, and beams out a group of three flashes of 10 million candlepower each, every 30 seconds.
The breathtaking scenes from there will stay with you for a very long time.A trip to Cape Point is a must for any Cape Town visitor.

One can see the Cape of Good Hope in the west from there. A hiking trail of 1 hour length (one way) links the two capes. The Cape of Good Hope can also easily be reached by car. The next time I load a photo onto TE it will be of Cape of Good Hope point
