Kalk Bay – February 2017

“Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.”

Andre Gide

We have spent the last couple of weeks provisioning and getting ready to leave South Africa, we decided to take a break and have a look for the first time at Kalk Bay.  Tristan was in Tanzania so it was just the four of us.  We enjoyed walking along the dock and seeing the sand sculptures before having fish and chips for lunch.

After lunch, we continued down the dock to where the fishing boats were and watched two different sea lions lumbering about on land and being fed fish by a local man.

We drove the Chapman’s Peak Rd from Kalk Bay back to Simon’s Town looking at the beautiful bays.  The Cape has been suffering drought for a few years and has suffered so many fires, this is so evident in the landscape.  At present there is less than 120 days of drinking water left, before people will have to  buy water.  Lets hope it rains soon.
