I so agree with you Clueless and Lisa. I absolutely love living at the coast. Alex's apartment overlooks the sea, pretty much at the beach. About 400m from the water I imagine.
Riaan, the chap who took the previous photo, was not happy with it because one can not see Alex correctly, so he took another one this morning, which I am including. I must admit that I prefer this photo as well.
It is the most beautiful view Carol. My friend has a coffee rondavel (tiny shop) very close to where Alex and I are standing. I normally begin the morning with one of his cappuccinos (with honey). Alex likes to go into the shop to look around, even though he has seen it every day for years. Nothing changes, but he has to check it out anyway. Fortunately we know the staff, so all is good. Common dolphins can be seen on most morning and this area is visited by Southern right whales and humpback whales for a number of months each year. Watching them breach with a sun rise background, is quite beautiful.
Alex is letting me know it is time to go to the coffee shop Mary Lynn. He enjoys a sneak taste of the cappuccino froth.
