Photo exhibition

Photo exhibit

There is a lovely outdoor photography exhibition that has suddenly appeared on the walkway between Muizenberg and St James. The first section is just past Bailey’s cottage, and the second at St James beach. I came across it completely by chance while out on a training run last night.

The purpose of the exhibition is to raise awareness of conservation in the False Bay area.

On fire again

Cape Town has been on fire since Sunday. Currently over 4000 ha of bush has been destroyed, and the fire is still not under control. To make it more difficult, yesterday was the hottest day in Cape Town for 100 years. At least today the cooler weather should help a little.

Last night we had another flare-up on Boyes Drive. Literally in the span of about 10 minutes the mountain went from dark to a flaming inferno. These pics were all taken yesterday afternoon and last night at and around my house.

Note the size of the fire truck in the first picture.
