Harbours at night
Don't you just love harbours at night? Well now, I don't mean ones with big old oily tankers, although they have their appeal; I mean ones with sailing vessels, pleasure liners and the like.

Cape Town Waterfront is really beautiful in the evening. Especially on crisp clear windless nights like this one. The quays are lined with attractive boats, contrasted with industrial-looking harbour cranes, all reflecting beautifully in the water. I picked this photograph over others because of the intrusively blue Victoria & Alfred Hotel that stands out from the black night, making it easy for guests to find.

Kerry-Anne and I had dinner with friends at the City Grill in the Waterfront this evening. The food was good and our waiters were just awesome tonight, reminding us of our stay in Paris last year, where we found the waiters to be at the top of their game.

The particular area where I took the photograph is close to where we had our meal, and is lined with several classy restaraunts boasting a huge variety of food. They're a little on the pricey side, but the food and atmosphere are just awesome.
