Another Nostalgic Beach Walk for Jo.

Today I’ve been clearing more drawers and cupboards, and on Friday, the removals truck will arrive to take away the furniture which is going up to our daughter in Johannesburg. My beloved grand piano will also be going along for the ride. I know I’ll shed a tear to see it go, as we’ve been such good friends for the past 30+ years. Well at least I know it’s going to a very good home, and it’s not like I’ll never see it again.

Last Sunday, we actually found time to go for a walk, and of course I took a few pics along the way, for Jo’s challenge. There were many people with the same idea, and the dog walkers were really out in force. (Click on any image to enlarge and see gallery).

The ‘ice cream/everything you need for the beach’ lady was doing her impressive balancing act.

The ever hopeful fishermen were optimistically casting their lines.

The security guys were doing their job, but not getting much exercise.

A quick stop to admire the lighthouse.

Then it’s up onto the pier.

We’re now peering down from the pier at the sand sculptor, who is hoping for a few more romantics to give him twenty rands. If another one comes along, Shane will be history.  🙂

Good to see the lifeguards are watching out for the surfers at Bronze beach.

Here’s a weird looking animal, rearing up from the foliage.

Did you ever see such a red and white striped tree branch before? If you’re tall, please mind your head! Personally, I think they should just saw it off; the dead branch, not your head. 🙂

Time to turn around now and head back home for lunch. The beach is getting quite busy.

No stopping at the shop for a candy bar or ice cream; it will spoil your lunch, as my mom always used to tell me.

Looks like someone passed out here, but best not disturb his dreams.

Let’s just take off our sandals and stop for one last look at the ocean.
