Today we motored around from the V&A Marina to Royal Cape Yacht Club. We are now moored in the club's marina which is tucked in to the industrial port area of Cape Town. The club house is quite nice. The jetties are (sadly) of the usual South African style, and are placed very close to each-other with narrow channels between.

The aquarium is well worth a visit, having great displays of sea creatures from both the cool South Atlantic and the warm Indian Oceans. The aquarium is particularly well setup for kids but has lots of interesting info for adults too.

Some of the plants on the top of the mountain were still in flower which made it very colourful. Visibility was good, allowing us to clearly see the "back" of both Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope. We saw several dassies, lizards and a few spectacular birds.
