Sir Lowry's Pass view point

After nearly a day on the road between Port Elizabeth and Cape Town (roughly about 800km and normally an 8 hour drive if you only stop once or twice briefly) one starts to be in a hurry by the time you get to the top of Sir Lowry's Pass just west of Somerset West.  The end destination is within reach after all.  I like to pull over on top of the pass at the view point for a couple of minutes first before heading down into the rush which is the Cape roads - I'm from Port Elizabeth after all.  The view from up there is probably one of the most beautiful sights around with the Strand and Somerset West in the foreground, False Bay on the left and Table Mountain in the distance.


  1. A view I both know and love well :-)

  2. I remember that view and almost didn't continue into the city mess.
