Kalk Bay near Cape Town

Kalkbaai lies between Muizenberg and Vishoek near Cape Town...



My wife , cheryl and I just spend a couple of days there. We rented a holiday cottage on the mainroad across the beach. Well, it not quite a beach, more a rocky coastline with a tidal pool and a short stretch of sand . . .






























Every morning we would go for an early morning cappuccino and then for a swim in the ice cold False Bay waters...its so cold that you don't want to get out because once you are out you just know you wont go back in again!

Kalk Bay's main street is choc a bloc full of little shops , restaurants, bookshop, interior decorating shops and coffee bars. Over the weekend it seemed as if half of Capetown descended on Kalkbaai to do some shopping and see and be seen. Kalkbaai has got a quirky bohemian atmosphere and people dress down rather than up...so different to Jo'burg where everything and everyone tries to be as posh as possible... and also no sign of the chosen few in their black German cars with blue lights flashing, shoving all and sundry off the road...





Everything happens at a slightly slower pace, food and drink is relatively inexpensive, except housing which is unbelievably expensive...but the vibe, fresh air, beaches and the view from the pavement is free.
