Superb area & with fantastic views. But why the Twelve Apostles, when there are seventeen in the range? It seems that no one really knows, but hey the number is not important the majesty of it all is what counts.

I've been numerous times to this hot spot. It is hidden away from the craziness of Camps Bay, standing in spectacular position near Oudekraal. The views are breathtaking and the atmosphere rich but warm. I've been fortunate to attend 2 weddings there, go for High Tea as well as a private family reunion and each and every time the service...
