Climbing table mountain.. Up in 1 hour, cable car down. Not a breath of wind on top. Beautiful.
Cedric kindly invited me for lunch at this fancy hotel / restaurant. We met in Hermanus a few days before, he was playing golf and DIVING WITH GREAT WHITE SHARKS! Glad to see the limbs intact.
Cedrics son, Blake, who also amazingly kept his limbs and can still count to ten using his fingers.
