Last week I had the great pleasure of an overnight in Simonstown. I was meant to take to the waters for my first open water scuba dive but the ocean was too rough for a newbie like me, and I did my touring above ground …..
This included a meander along False Bay with a stopover at St James’ beach, famous for its much photographed Victoria bathing huts. I’d never been on this beach before, or stood next to the huts, and being there made me so happy. I walked in the tidal pool, ventured into the shallow waters and knew I was somewhere special. All this as the train between Simonstown and the city passed me by. Loved it!
