The V&A Waterfront, which attracts roughly 24 million visitors each year, is South Africa’s most-visited destination. This is hardly surprising when you think about how much it has to offer!
  While it is still technically a working harbour – you’ll no doubt catch a glimpse of fishing boats and container ships – the V&A Waterfront is more frequently thought of as a shopping destination. Covering 123 hectares (think: 180 rugby fields), the V&A Waterfront is divided up into five shopping districts: Victoria Wharf, the Watershed, The Alfred Mall and Pierhead, The Clock Tower, and Breakwater Point. With more than 450 stores, you’ll find everything from local designers to big international brands. For crafts and local talent, make sure you pop into the Watershed, and, if it’s art or jewellery you’re after, head over to The Alfred Mall and Pierhead.
  All that shopping is likely to work up an appetite, and the myriad restaurants, coffee shops and fast-food outlets will keep you fuelled. Of course, some of the restaurants and bars are reason enough to visit the V&A Waterfront. The majority of the restaurants at the V&A Waterfront have excellent views of the harbour, and those that don’t – such as Willoughby & Co – make up for it with top-notch food. (Really, the sushi is hard to beat!) If you after something a little more relaxed, head over to the V&A Food Market where you’ll find regional delicacies, artisanal breads and cheeses, craft beers, vegan treats, and biltong. It’s foodie heaven! If it’s a hot day – or even if it’s not – make sure you swing by The Creamery for a scoop of the best ice-cream in town.
For sundowners, you’ll want to try the Life Grand Café or the trendy Cabo Beach Club, where the beautiful views vie with the gorgeous patrons for your attention. Bascule Bar at the Cape Grace hotel offers a sophisticated whisky-tasting experience, and Belthezar on Victoria Wharf reputedly has the widest selection of wine by the glass in the world!

Those are some lazy seals,     the least they could do for you is a trick or two.

I prefer your other spots - the natural ones. Though the seals are rather funny.

Yup! there is the seal of approval, and the citrus seal and the presidential seal, the vacuum seal etc. Mostly just a lot of hot wax anyway.
All these particular seals do is laze around in the sun all day, eating the odd fish or twenty. Lazing in the sun all day really works up an appetite.

Indeed they are so tame, if you offer them a fish they may just consider taking your arm as an after.
When I was in the diving school we often would swim with seals - very playful with fish smelling breath.
What you should watch out for are the seagulls, they will steal your food right out of your mouth.

Oh the gulls are a threat here too. On the coast at least.

Maybe but I believe Tom's, Roger's and Depp's work is far superior to mine. Oh well!
