I love living on the Vlei – there is always something interest happening there. Last weekend I took the dogs for a walk on the vlei, and I saw a canoe regatta in full swing. So of course after walking the dogs I popped back down to the vlei to take a few more pictures.
I have no idea what the rules were, but it seemed to be some sort of time-trial between sets of two boats.

There was a beautiful winter sunrise this morning over Zandvlei.
This time of year is amazing for going out on the Vlei for a paddle in my Kayak. It is warming up, and you still get a lot of wind-free afternoons to enjoy the water.
And for the first time in years, the Flamingo’s are back. They are in just about every river and lake in Cape Town at the moment; it is great.

One of the side-effects of the ongoing loadshedding in Cape Town is beauthful skies at night. On this evening my suburb was in total darkness, but you can clearly see that the next-door neighbourhood had light. So I managed to shoot this wonderful shot of the moonrise with a few start in the background.
