My first time to the Motherland, my first time on the other side of the equator. Though it being winter in Capetown South Africa,and I still managed to have fun in the sun…
Capetown in July is the middle of winter for South Africa. Though it being winter, the Golden Mile weather still allowed for a few beach days. YAAYYY!! The Golden Mile is a beach boardwalk in Capetown where restaurants, parks and souvenir shops line the beachfront boardwalk. The Golden Mile is a place to gather… you see skateboarders, surfers, kids playing and of course the Capetown tradition of people taking rides in the rickshaw, a practice brought to the South African beach city in the late 1800s. It is a great way to view the African seaside.
In the picture above, I am catching some sun with a South African rickshaw driver. His traditional headpiece was so amazing, I had to take a picture. I opted for a comfy floral tube top and matching shorts for a relaxed beach day and paired with straw hat, Le Spec sunglasses and Rebecca Minkoff “fannypack”.
