I often say that I live in Paradise! Then I have to explain that it’s not a suburb name, just the best word I can think of to describe an area that feels to me like heaven on earth. The exquisite beauty of the Cape coastline is famous around the world, but for me it’s a reality far beyond pictures.
It’s just amazing to think that I can actually live here, on the side of a mountain (a nature reserve) overlooking False Bay. I can see whales from my living room window, breathe sea air and walk or cycle to the beach for my daily swim.
Kalk Bay and neighbouring St James and Muizenberg offer a huge variety of leisure options and I take advantage of as many of these as I can, whenever I can! Watch my blog for the latest fun that’s being had!
