Muizenberg Beach

Muizenberg Beach

While those of you in the Northern hemisphere pull on another winter woolly, shovel snow and dream of summer sunshine, those of us here in the Southern hemisphere, in the Other Down Under in South Africa, take to the beaches for a little relief from the relentless heat. There is usually a strong off-shore breeze to cool you down, and of course you could always swim; though the water is icy cold.

What I like about here are the restful views of distant horizons, the long white beaches to walk on and the crashing waves on the rocks as the tide turns.

        I don’t watch sports much, but I do follow big international competitions like the Olympics or the World Cup if I have the time. I remember the vuvuzelas. 🙂

    This is so nice!! Also icy cold waters….even better…just like those rich blokes in icy waters in Europe having an ice dip for health. Lovely sea shot Sci! Happy Friday and weekend ahead 🙂

    Ah, I love anything about the ocean. Thanks for this wonderful photo. I have not been to the ocean for years, but my favorite area is the Pacific Ocean along the U.S. Western coast. I am going to the Gulf coast this coming May or June or eat my hat. lol

    I used to love walking along the cliff tops in Bournemouth, coming down the path (didn’t use the cliff railway) and then walking across a suspension bridge overlooking the gardens (used to sway a bit especially if there were a lot of people on it!), and then along the beach. Quite a distance, but I was a lot younger (and fitter) then!

      Sounds like a lovely walk 🙂 We used to go to Bridlington for our summer hols. It was lovely to walk along the beach at night towards Flamborough 🙂
