Cape Restaurants

View over Clovelly Golf Course from the clubhouse to Fishhoek. The rich lush grass-green of the course contrasts with the darker trees in the middle distances and the relative dryness of the hill beyond. Several sand traps like in the rear-centre of the image. A golfer in an orange T-xhirt is visible at the far right of the image.

Country Club Dinner with a View

Clovelly Country Club On Friday evening my partner and I enjoyed a delicious dinner with his cousins at the Clovelly Country Club. We sat at a table on the Deck, the outdoor terrace of the Clovelly Country Club, to see the sunset on the Atlantic Ocean. It was cold so the waiter provided a tall gas heater to keep us warm. It was lovely to sit there all evening. The view over the Fish Hoek beach and...

Dolphins in False Bay

This morning Yvonne and I met in Kalk Bay to cycle towards Cape Point. We managed to cycle off road to avoid the traffic. It was a sunny morning, but with wind. We had only cycled to Glencairn when the wind was so strong that we regretfully decided to return and console ourselves with coffee at the Olympia Cafe. The wind was behind us, so it was easy cycling back. At Clovelly we stopped to admire the...

Cape Point Cycle ride on Sunday

After a week of stormy weather, Midwinter 22 June was a sunny morning. We loaded the bikes and drove to Simons Town to meet a friend for breakfast at the False Bay Yacht Club. After a delicious breakfast, the sun was still shining and there was no wind so we drove for 20 minutes, along the coast to the Cape Point info centre. We unloaded the bikes and cycled down to the sea in False Bay. We...

Lunch at the Grande Roche Hotel

What a good experience we have had to get a new passport. We drove through the vineyards for an hour to reach Paarl. The old oak trees and Cape Dutch buildings delighted us when we arrived in Paarl. Soon we were parked in the small carpark. I followed my daughter into the building 5 minutes later and after 2 minutes we walked out with the passport. What a relief that our second experience was no...

Argus Cycle Tour 9 March 2008

On Sunday I watched the 31st Argus Cycle Tour from the winesense restaurant on Main Road in Kalk Bay. 33000 cyclists passed us on bicycles, tricycles, tandems and monocycles in perfect weather conditions — no wind. The race is very well-organised by the Pedal Power Association, but it is difficult to recognise friends as they pass. You need to know their estimated time of arrival in Kalk Bay to be able...
