V&A Waterfront

Today was cold and wet, so we were looking for indoor activities. We found plenty down at the V&A Waterfront. Our first order of business was to visit the Springbok Experience, which is a rugby museum that Weston found for us. It was fun to learn a bit about the game and get to play around with some of the interactive exhibits. After that, we found one of the less wet picnic tables near the playground and consumed our sack lunch and some treats from a nearby bakery, while listening to some fun live music. Next up was the enclosed ferris wheel, where we had a lot of laughs and enjoyed the great views of the harbor. Finally, we headed over to the Two Oceans Aquarium, where we saw lots of beautiful and unique sea creatures. We love Cape Town and feel that we could easily spend at least twice as much time here as what we have scheduled!

These tubular anemones were beautiful and mesmerizing.

A beautiful display

The touch pool was a big hit with these three!

  2. My children would love a day like that too. My oldest daughter, 15, has loved sharks all her life.
