A half-day “holiday” in my new favourite place: Kalk Bay

Isn’t it amazing to live in a city where a short 40 minute drive can take you somewhere so different to your daily life that it just feels like you’re on holiday (albeit a short one). Yesterday we finally actually visited Kalk Bay. Don’t be judgy. Usually we’ve just driven through on the odd occasion of driving friends through to Boulders Beach or something, but we’ve never actually stopped to explore this little seaside fishing village.

Filled with quirky little shops, tons of vintage shops and plenty of wonderful little places to eat or grab a drink (which I wished so badly we could try out). I didn’t expect the amount of random vintage shops. Like tons and tons of just old stuff. Sometimes I like the vintage appeal, but other times I just don’t get it.

We walked in and out of all the little shops (Greg was such a sport!), down to the harbour (I’ve never been that up close to a seal before!), and stopped for coffee.

Next time I want to stop for drinks at the Brass Bell, the day was shorter than we would have liked as we had a friend’s birthday to attend. On the way home, we stopped somewhere just after Muizenberg on a cement ledge to have a bit of lunch. Usually we’re the type to do household admin work on a Sunday morning, and I’m so glad we put that off to enjoy a morning out together. Good company, beautiful views, and a fun day.

    Ah man, absolutely beautiful! Who needs to explore overseas, when we have our own beautiful country?!
