Camps Bay & Clifton Beach
A new day! Waking up at 6am a bright yet foggy morning was excellent. In Scotland it wasn’t reaching daylight until 8.30am so as soon as sunrise hit, we were up and getting ready for our day. Currently, Cape Town is suffering from load shedding - an intentionally engineered electrical power shutdown where electricity delivery is stopped for non-overlapping periods of time over different parts of the distribution region. This happens three times a day for an overall 7-8 hours and this morning was from 8am, so we made sure we were good to go from there and excited for a day exploring the bays.
Camps bay is an absolutely beautiful section of the city and to be fair, everyone who lives here is MINTED, it’s like the Hollywood hills of Cape Town which means it’s safe and that’s pretty much why we chose it, even though as cheap as it was, it’s still blowing our budget – you pay to be safe right? We arrived at the beach and wandered, snapping lots of stunning pics of the rolling mountains behind the bay and from there made our may to Clifton beach. We walked as we don’t have a car until tomorrow but it’s only about 20 minutes from each other so easily accessible.
We made it home for 3.30pm, red and ashamed of our stupidity with the sunscreen and reckon tonight will be a night in watching movies and feeling hot, tired, sorry for ourselves and burnt.
For dinner tonight as much as we wanted to just lie in bed and bathe in a bath of milk, I managed to cook us up a storm and just look at the setting? Isn't is simply beautiful? Roll on feeling excellent for Table Mountain tomorrow!
