It is rated as the world’s most picturesque swimming pool. The promenade gets walked on by people from every continent. They come from afar to experience the sublime natural beauty of Cape Town. (It is a good time to visit, if you are a foreigner, as the exchange rate really is in your favour and weather is exceptionally good for winter.)
We had the most lovely sunshine day, sniffing champagne air, which is how the salty freshness of the ocean fragrance is described with affection.
A most calm ocean after the recent storm. Two Egyptian geese swimming among the leisure craft, we saw mullet in the marina and dearest old Table Mountain treated us with a lovely, cloud-free display.
A tourist from up country needed directions and we took her on the bus, ensuring she gets off at the right stop. Along the way, a nice conversation ensued. Like ourselves, she does humanitarian work and comes down to Cape Town every three months or so. As it is whale season, she and her family are also going to visit Hermanus where there is a profound whale culture. Hermanus us a picturesque coastal town where tourists flock to experience especially the Southern Right Whales.
We had a small fillet of hake each for supper, a rare treat yet the fish was perfectly fried, just flaking nicely. And so fresh I was surprised it wasn’t still swimming.
So, all in all, our Lord Jesus blessed us with yet another lovely day out.
