Day 94 – Wave, daddy!

[Glasto (2) post postponed for the moment, because…]

We went for a drive down the Atlantic Seaboard yesterday. Well… a bit of it, anyway.

Weather like yesterday’s can’t be ignored and we needed the fresh, unsullied air from the ocean.

There was plenty of it to go around, with some frothing chaos on Slangkop beach:

And some grim, stormy seas behind the lighthouse:

It’s always difficult to demonstrate the sheer scale of the seas in photos. So just suffice to say that I was very glad to be on the land and not on the water. Big waves. Big.

The weather was dark, moody and gloomy one minute:

But patchy sunlight scudded across the bay every now and again, giving some occasional delicious light:


You can see all the photos (that I felt were worth sharing) from yesterday here.

And you can come back here for that other Glasto-inspired post tomorrow.

Some Photos

But maybe not just yet.

We’ve been doing some touristy things this week, as you may have noticed from the brief but touristy posts I’ve been briefly posting. We’ve had friends over from the UK and it’s been great to enjoy the opportunity to be tourists in and around our city. Something that yes, I know we should do more, but no, we don’t.

Yesterday was BRANDY! the Winelands, today was Cape Point and those penguins at Boulders.

There are many shots on my repaired camera which will surely (hopefully) be better than this one from my phone, and since we’re going to be relaxing all solo over the next few days, I’ll hopefully have a chance to go through them and get some onto Flickr (internet dependent).

This – Misty Cliffs – remains one of my favourite Cape views. But I’m not sure which variation I prefer: today’s or this one from an altogether wilder day out.
