Brighton Beach

Cds MG 1145
Yes, it is true. Brighton does not have a real beach. The beach consists purely of round pebbles. Ok so yes the beach is real, just not to a South African.

They have been word down for such a long time, that they are almost soft to walk on. But it is really different to walking on the beaches in Cape Town.

The upside of course is that when then wind blows, you don’t get the Cape Town sandblasting.

Here is a small pier with fishermen on the end (of course not to be confused with Brighton Pier)

Brighton beach is a great place to sit and contemplate the world; these two people were shot in Hove, sitting and watching the sea

Stream at Kirstenbosch

Cds MG 0455A couple of six second exposure of one of the streams inside Kirstenbosch Gardens in Cape Town. Kirstenbosch,

Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden is truly one of the most beauthful gardens in the world. It covers approximately 46 hecatares, and contains a staggering 7000 different plant species. The Cape Floristic Region, which includes Kirstenbosch, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site –the first botanic garden in the world to be included.

We were there for a picnic to celebrate a friend’s birthday, you are welcome to take your own picnics, but they also have two wonderful restaurants.

You can find more details on their website.

Birds landing

Cds MG 0177There is a tiny lagoon on the beach, just opposite the landfill on Baden Powell drive which I often drive past. In the morning it is covered in Seagulls and small birds enjoying the shallow waters.

Today I stopped to take a pic of them, and I gaught this show of the two birds fighting (or possibly mating). I really don’t know Seagulls too well, but they constantly literally flying into each other and almost chasing each other away.

It was an interesting site, and I think it makes quite a nice photo.
