I drove out to Bloubergstrand this morning with my camera. Located 20 km North of Cape Town, this area never gained the acclaim or investment that the city’s Atlantic Seaboard did, despite its incredible natural beauty and unsurpassed view of Table Mountain.
Whilst taking in the beautiful misted views of ships on the ocean, wind in my hair, sand on my feet, cyclists and runners dashing by, I came to a realization. A realization that personally, despite the sea of development that is the road from Cape Town to this piece of Blouberg paradise, I would rather find myself living a windswept life on this coastline. A West Coast girl at heart.
