Stepping into Autumn in the Cape Winelands

Stepping into Autumn in the Cape Winelands

I like Cape Town in May. The heat has dimmed, and the wind has finally settled. Autumn breaks and the mornings greet you with a cooler edge. Life finally starts to slow down after our summer loving on the beach. As leaves start to turn, I feel a spring enter my step. We are on…
