A Beach in Winter

Sophie milnerton beach

The incredible thing about Cape Town winters is days like today when the temperature sails up to 24, 25 degrees, and beaches where the south-easter howls in summer, like the ones around Milnerton, become perfection itself. We found ourselves there by accident after we discovered the Milnerton market was closing up for the day. People were surfing, swimming, looking for mussels or, like us, just chilling and admiring the view of Table Mountain.

Sophie and I dozed and watched the water, and Per and Elisabeth wandered off to find shells.

After an hour or so we walked up to Maestros for cold beer and garlic pizzas. On the way home 5fm played cool music and we turned it up loudly and drove with the windows open and the air was warm and the world felt good. And the thing is, this is where we live – not in crime stats or newspaper articles or doomsday predictions about the future, but in days.

  1. I nearly shed a tear when I saw Sophie on the first picture! She is so beautiful and so grown up… That girl was Oscars very first friend! And her mom one of my closest friends in Sweden :)

    1. Aaaaah, I know! They are so big now. It was a shock to see Oscis last summer. They were friends before they were born, and didn’t even know it :-) Big hug and kiss to you, my darling far away xxx
