Wednesday 14 April 2021, Day 45 of Level 1 😷

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for a beautiful day, 28 C in town and slightly cooler in Camps Bay, with the most beautiful cotton wool ball clouds, and another spectacular sunset; for a good morning in getting all my work completed, using Word on my new iPad for the first time; for a good client meeting at Anatoli, spoilt with tea and biscuits; for an excellent power walk when I got back home, on my secret Bakoven path, getting a good Cardio score, and 300 Discovery points; for the bonus of Vivian Warby coming to join me, experiencing a spectacular sunset; for two Discovery Gameboard plays; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙 Continue reading →

Camps Bay Beach on Travel & Leisure 2021 World’s Most Beautiful Beaches List!

 

Yesterday Getaway magazine shared that Camps Bay Beach is one of the World’s Most Beautiful Beaches, according to American Travel publication Travel & Leisure.

The Travel publication described our Beach as follows: ‘Truly beautiful beaches tend to be remote-island destinations far from the urban buzz. A big exception is Camps Bay Beach, right in vibrant Cape Town’. 

Camps Bay Beach rubs shoulders with 24 other beaches around the world, including Elafonissi Beach in Greece, Baia do Sancho in Brazil, Le Morne in Mauritius, Copacabana in Rio de Janeiro, Clearwater Beach in Florida, Sotavento Beach in Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands,  Hanele Bay in Kauai in Hawaii, Nungwi Beach in Tanzania, Anse Source D’Agent, La Digue Island in the Seychelles, Shark Creek Beach in the Bahamas, Whitehaven Beach on Whitsundays Island in Australia, Praia de Marina in The Algarve in  Portugal, and Scala dei Turchi in Sicily.

I’m very proud of my home suburb, and that I have made it my missi9n to keep the Camps Bay Beachfront clean and free of litter!
