A Hard Day’s Winter

It was so warm last Sunday , 21st July, that Peter even had a swim in the sea. This is a picture of “our” beach in the late afternoon. Now things are back to wintery wet and cold – but still with lovely moments interspersed.

Orcas in False Bay

Last week False Bay was visited by a pod of Orcas. I did not actually see them, they were round near the lighthouse but David Hurwitz, who runs one of the local boat companies, took some amazing photos. There were about 9 of them with one baby. They killed a dolphin – hunting class for the little […]

What a privilege!

Last Sunday afternoon watched the most amazing display from our deck – hundreds of dolphins, thousands of gannets and a couple of whales all after what must have been a very promising shoal of fish.

They disappeared in a few days but the water hasfremained unusually warm ever since then. Swimming has been amazingly good on our little beach with sea temperatures […]

First pool swim of the season

Yesterday, perhaps inspired by the whales, Peter and I took our first pool swim of the season – brisk but wonderful – realised how much I miss our daily swim in the winter. Soon it will be time for the first sea swim. Of course there are those amazing souls around here who swim all year […]

Whales aplenty

The last few days the whales have been pulling out all the stops right here in front of Sea Foever. When I told our son in London about the half hour of tail splashing, spy hopping,fin waving and rollovers I had been watching he said”Oh yes, that’s the routine  Cape Tourism have asked them to […]
