false bay

A whale of a time

On Sunday, we celebrated my mother-in-laws birthday by having lunch at her house. She live in St James, and her deck has a wonderful view of False Bay. Everybody came to the birthday  party, even a mother and baby whale made an appearance. This shot of the mom and baby whale playing was taken from the deck (with my point and shoot, so this is as close as I could get).

Late Afternoon on Strandfontein Beach

The winter rain has arrived today, but it was not here on Tuesday. I caught this shot while driving home to Muizenberg. The mountains in the distance are the Hottentots-Holland mountains, and if you look carefully, you can see the hotels of the Strand on the edge of the water across the bay. This is one of the most peaceful and clean beaches in the world (at least I think so).

Wednesday evening sailing

Yesterday it was:

1) a very hot day
2) the last week of holidays for many people
3) a Wednesday

This can only mean one thing: a bumper Wednesday evening cruise at False Bay Yacht Club. I counted over 30 yachts out on the water enjoying the wonderful weather. I was stuck in my car, but how I would have loved to be out there.

Cape Town from Pringle Bay

In a recent post I promised to show you a photo of Cape Town from the “other side” of False Bay. Well, here is a view of the False Bay coast of Cape Town, taken from Pringle Bay, looking a Simonstown on the left, heading past Muizenberg and towards Cape Town itself on the right.

Pringle Bay is a wonderful area, amazingly under-developed, with the most beautiful beach. We spend Saturday and Sunday there, and it was such a relaxing break, much needed to charge the batteries before the Christmas chaos about to come.

We took Eccles and Emily with us, and they both (literally) had a whale of a time.
