Amazing Pink Sunset

I’ve never seen a sunset quite like this one taken from Waterkloof Vineyard in Gordon’s Bay, Cape Town. Because of the bush fires raging close to table mountain the sky is quite incredible.pink sunset Gordon's Bay

This pair of beautiful Oyster Catchers have been sitting on their nest for well over 3 weeks in the spectacular Bientangs Cave Restaurant in Hermanus, Western Cape.

I love this photo of the parent protecting her egg from the cormorant!

Bientangs Cave Restaurant Hermanus

bientangs-slider_800

Every once in a while you come across something, or somewhere that makes you feel at peace with the world. One such place for me is Bientangs Cave Restaurant, Hermanus, South Africa

I was introduced to Bientangs by some very close friends about 3 years ago and now every time I visit South Africa , Bientangs is a ‘must go to place”!

Bientangs Cave Restaurant , Hermanus has won many prestigious awards, including the coveted Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence !

I haven’t been lucky enough to visit Bientangs in the whale season but the location of the Cave Restaurant is probably the best place to spot whales on the whole of the whale coast!

Probably my Best Ever Photo

slider-dolphins-1This photo was taken from a remote beach on the Western Cape called Dappat Se Gat!

The dolphins put on the most beautiful show surfing the waves and I was lucky enough to have my camera exactly at the right place

They were waiting behind the wave until a good one came along and then all surfed the wave together!

 

 

An update to the above photo- I thought this was a ‘once in a lifetime’ photo but when I want back to the beach, camera in hand, there they were again, only MORE!

It was SPECTACULAR!!

Boulders Bay Penguin Colony | Cape Town

Penguins inSouth Africa? I had no idea we would be able to walk amongst penguins in Cape Town, in a beautiful setting in Boulders Beach.

`’ There are few places in the world where you can get this close to a breeding colony of penguins, swim close to them in the sea and enjoy their private sandy beach.

Boulders Beach is situated near Simon’s Town in False Bay between Fish Hoek and Cape Point.

It’s about 2km from the Simon’s Town train station, which is the last stop on the scenic Southern Line railway route. The sea here is good for swimming and the big, round boulders on the sandy beach provide some shade and shelter. Since it forms part of the Table Mountain National Park, there is an entrance fee, which goes towards paying for conservation of the endangered African penguins that live here.`’
