Kalk Bay at about 6am.
Good to see that old chokkie boat is still going. Many good memories there I helped build 2 of the boats that float in there and fished from three of them. Good times!
If your'e going to do something do it with conviction!

I used to go out from there as a "Tripper" as well in the day. Remember paying R15 then R20 per day....... or a share of the fish we caught. Typically Red Roman, Yellow Tail or Snoek.......... used to stop off near the Point to catch Chokka first......
My favourite was the old Ivy Doreen....... she's still there in Green & White but nowadays a crayfish trawler...   :'(

This is another webcam shot of a thunderstorm brewing off Cape Town about two weeks ago.  Needless to say we had incredible lightning and thunder that night.

I merged 3 photos into one, as can be seen by the slight distortion,.... but IMHO, still a cool shot of Table Bay. ;)

 :patch: :patch: :patch: :patch:  listen - I needed to just point out the fact that it's there.... not pinpoint it!  :peepwall:  Llundudno left - the long walk to the beach on the right........ Sandy Bay used to be great and then the dune stabilisation in Houtbay started messing with the natural flow of the sand to supply the beach. More and more it's disappearing and more rocks visible - sad indeed due to mismanagement!  :'(
