Went for an early morning dip. It looks idyllic but eeeeeesh it was cold-like-ice. Submerged for all of about 15 seconds and couldn’t take a breath! Woke me up though and the 2-minute walk from my flat reminded me how privileged I am ☺️ #sea#wildswimming#tidalpool#beach#margate#cliftonville
"I love this seaweed we found in some rock pools the other day. It’s like conical underwater flowers or reminds me of some form of succulent 🧡" @naturelovingmum we love it too!! Thanks for sharing 🙏

DAY2 Brass Bell Tidal Pool
Can you feel the lightness if my mood in the far from grumpy sunrise skies over False Bay. The thrill of traveling overseas and exploring new corners of the globe can be done with the same thrill... right under your nose... if you let it!
It was dark when I rose earlier this morning, not wanting to rush a gift to myself by taking on the world before most are awake.
Heading down in my new little red 🚘 in my newly rediscovering Kalk Bay, I know again that life can change on the spin of a dime if you let it
Parking next to some early opening coffee cafes, I head over into the famous Brass Bell tunnel, hearing the warning thoughts of friends in my head but trusting in my universe and instincts. It’s too early for others. It’s perfect timing for me
A row of black starlings show me the way to the new little gate giving safe access to this legendary place. I remember my first trip ever here, some million years ago when I worked for marketing guru at AIM. A business trip, one of many in my previous life... and a lunch at the wave breaking Cape Town place, a must still on most people’s list to visit, experience and take home to tell stories about.
I have my fair share of those, but on a milder, more meaningful one than the to much alcohol ones 😄
Back to the breaking light over False Bay and a rush of appreciation in this life I have designed and lived for many years now. Not always knowing where it was going. Always sure that it is Mother Nature that gives rise to the stillness in n me.
And here I am again... a lone human out with the greatness, the grayness, the spoils of an early day
Smiling as I do like a glorified meditation quiet. I am at peace. I am quiet though my mind is busy with the joy of a new corner turned
