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?
For this week’s WordPress challenge I searched through my archives and found this pic. I battled a bit finding a photo that means security for me. All I could think about was burglar bars and electric fences. Now if you’re South African, you’ll resonate I’m sure. And that’s not a happy photo at all.
So I chose this one – of the brass bell and I think lighthouse (although it does seem a bit small) at the mouth of Kalk Bay harbour. I don’t think it is to warn ship out at sea, but rather to guide the fishing boats into the harbour, the bell on the one side of the harbour wall, and the light on the other, keeping them safe and secure.
There’s nothing more relaxing for me than to be at the seaside and gaze upon the vast expanse of the ocean. Last weekend was one such time where I was able to do that. This is the view from our Airbnb place.
