A Postcard From …

A trip on a funicular railway

to hilltop sites, hiking and exploring

Lunch at a colonial bungalow

Tastefully refurbished

with spacious balconies

Offering birds eye view

of hill country landscape


Round the island trip

on a hop on, hop off bus

Novel way of seeing interesting

Beach and city views

and cultural enclave

You hop on and hop off

at any stop to walk about

Take photos

or just enjoy a cuppa

at the tea-house

and watch the world go by …


Evening boat cruise

captures harbour lights

and the stunning sunset

As it lights up the evening sky

to a warm orange glow

Where sparkling stars

begin to twinkle

And the gentle breeze

adds to the day’s

experience and reflection

On this eclectic

Isle of palms.
