These photos make me happy, especially seeing the mountain from this side of Table Bay. I never tire of looking at Table Mountain, one of the natural wonders of the world.
Famed for its strong winds, on this day, Cape Town didn’t disappoint. The kite-surfers were blissfully happy as the wind carried them high over the waves, fast.
The poor seagulls were being tossed around a bit. Many of them just sat down on the ground, infinitely safer than being swept away. Those brave enough to fly didn’t have to do much work, as the wind carried them effortlessly. As to whether they were blown where they wanted to go, well, that’s another thing altogether. Sitting down, well, that proved to be the safest bet altogether.
Enjoy the slide-show I’ve put together for you.

Not your ordinary photo challenge, Cee Fun Photo Challenge is going through the alphabet. This week we’re asked to post photos the subject of which starts with the letter D and is 4 letters in length. As Cee says:
You can always use adjectives and adverbs with a specific topic just make sure you give us the word that fits the requirements of this challenge. Feel free to use your native language as your inspiration for this challenge, just please give us the word in your language and the english translation. Use your imagination for this theme. The thing is to have a lot of fun with this challenge.
This week we have dawn, dusk and door.
Wintry Durban dawn:
I love these doors with so much unique character in Lisbon:
And now for the pics I seem to take the most of – dusk…
Texture – a simple word that describes complex human experience. Note: artistic or writer’s license has been liberally used in the crafting of this post.
The visual , the look of something, its characteristic, like smooth water.
The auditory – the sound of something, like a piece of music, how music feels to the ear – melodious, heavy or discordant, like the sounds of waves crashing on the beach and the elevated voices of people playing in the surf.
The kinaesthetic – how something feels like when you run your hand over the surface, like stroking the soft fur of a cat or walking over rough rocks.
The olfactory – how something smells like the floral or exotic texture of a perfume and the smell of the African bush.
The gustatory – rubbery oysters, a silky créme caramel or a crunchy cookie.

I was pretty much absent on the blogging front last week. Roll-call would have come up with silence. I was taking photos though so that I’d be able to report back to you that last week consisted of a wonderful trip to Cape Town. For work, off course. Any trip to Cape Town, even a work one is pleasant because, well, Cape Town. I have proof of this assertion…in the photos below. Take a look…
As the plane came in to land this is what greeted me. As you can see it was breathtaking so much so that I quickly switched on my phone to capture it before landing. How gorgeous is that?
