Saturday stroll...

Wow, what a fantastic spring day.

It seems that the whole of Cape Town was out and about, enjoying the wonderful weather. The body boarders were in the water taking advantage of the waves off the Danger Beach reef.

A whole new take on the Weekend drive. Perhaps they were looking for Whales? The whales had been seen earlier in the morning, breaching, "head standing" and generally showing off for the Tourists.

Down at Dalebrook pools at Kalk Bay there even some brave people having a swim, without a wetsuit! The water
temperature is still only 11deg C,
very cold by South African standards.

This looked like a really fabulous way to spend an afternoon. Just enough of a breeze to sail gently across the Bay.

St James and Danger Beach from Kalk Bay Harbour

The Patrons enjoying lunch at "The Brass Bell" had a grandstand view of the waves crashing against the Kalk Bay pools.

It was too late in the day to see the"Catch of the day" being landed, but, when this boat moved from the outer Harbour wall to the landing jetty, it had a lot of spectators.

People come from all over Cape Town to enjoy the sunshine and good food available in Kalk Bay, from fine dining at one of the many restuarants, to Fish and Chips, eaten outside next to all the action.

These four young men asked us so nicely to take their photo, how could we refuse. Gentlemen, I hope you like it.

A visit to the Ice Cream shop was supposed
to be the last stop, but, the Whales
decided it was show time again.

What a fabulous afternoon, now, back to work...
