A visit to Signal Hill

A visit to Signal Hill
The city surprised its tourists today with a wonderfully warm and sunny autumn day. We decided to go up Signal Hill, where we were thrown into the midst of "tourist central" - we had endless entertainment watching people posing for shots of themselves with Table Mountain or Lion's Head in the background.

Signal Hill (from where I took this photo of Table Bay Harbour) is known for its Noon-day Gun, which has been fired as a time-keeper at noon each day for the last 200 years.

I can remember that when I worked in Cape Town's CBD the sound of the gunshot rumbling over the city each day marked the arrival of lunch-time :).
