Autumn Sunrise

This is the reward for waking up early at this time of the year to photograph the sunrise across False Bay on a Sunday morning 🙂

Not a breath of wind near the yacht basin in Simonstown either, where the pastel hues of pink and blue and lilac reflected on the wet shoreline.  #blissfulSundays

Muizenberg Landmarks

Although famous for surfing, Muizenberg is also full of interesting eateries and landmarks reminiscent of then town’s golden days, like the Edwardian-era red brick architecture of Muizenberg Station with its’ beautiful teak clock tower.  It’s easy to spend a morning wandering around taking it all in.

The signage on Kent’s Stores made me laugh out loud.  What on earth were they producing at “The South African Toilet Requisite Co Ltd” back in the day?

Southern Right Whales

I was so blessed today to see the last of this season’s Southern Right whales frolicking in False Bay.  The pics aren’t wonderful as she was some distance away from shore but you can see her blowing and at one point her calf emerges from the water with her.  What an honour to live in a place these beautiful creatures visit.405 430 442
