Exploring the mother city is one of my favourite things to do; she’s like the gift that keeps on giving. This scenic city will put the extraordinary in to the simplest of outings. Sunday afternoon drives along the coast, the open ocean, the sound of the waves crashing against the rocks, and that soft sea breeze…it never gets old.

Easy travel around the Cape – Sunday drives along the cost

Palm tree drive

Exploring the mother city is one of my favourite things to do; she’s like the gift that keeps on giving. This scenic city will put the extraordinary in to the simplest of outings. Sunday afternoon drives along the coast, the open ocean, the sound of the waves crashing against the rocks, and that soft sea breeze…it never gets old for me. In fact every drive out to Hout Bay is a new drive, I’d usually hit the Hout Bay Harbour around lunch time on a Saturday or Sunday when the harbour is full of life, everyone is hungry and the freshly caught fish has arrived to shore – and of course in Cape Town style it’s all about the fish and chips – But sometimes I want to be in my thoughts, and find some still moments to take in, and an afternoon drive to the harbour is just the thing for that sets the mood right.

There was just a scatter of people on the beach, the boats are still, and things are quiet and tranquil. I took a walk on the harbour and noticed something that I hadn’t noticed before; I met a gentleman who puts on a daring show! He would hold some fish up to his mouth and call on a seal he’s been working with for 7 years, this seal would leap out of the water and grab the fish out of his mouth…after chatting with him I could tell this man enjoyed spending time with this great seal, and the trust they share with each other truly warmed my heart. Out of all the seals that would come to enjoy the food and swim away this one stayed even when the show was over, this man and his beast.

Further down the harbour, on a jetty that seemed to have no end, I bumped in to some newlyweds taking their first picture together as a happy couple her dress looked so beautiful against the sunset. I took a seat on the jetty with my feet just dangling on the side, I love that it gives me such an adrenaline high and calm at the same time. Soon though, it was time for a sunset drive back, the rest is in the pictures and for those who are close by or in the mother city, take a drive and enjoy this amazing part of the Cape for yourself. This is my idea of an easy travel around the Cape, It’s simple and inexpensive, why not make your surroundings work for you?
Until later #BeTrueBeYouBisous.
