Favorite Foto Friday
It’s another BEAUTIFUL summer Friday. The weather the past two days has truly been perfect! I’d love to be out sailing in Casco Bay but I’ll settle for my long runs by it, at least.
This picture was taken from another truly beautiful summer, the summer month of January that I spent in Cape Town, South Africa. This is a photo from Muizenberg Beach, one of my favorite spots in Cape Town. Obviously, it was a beach! These colored changing houses are a famous subject of many photographers visiting Cape Town.
I remember taking the train from Wynberg, where I lived, to the beaches we would often frequent. Muzienberg was one of the first stops, and then you could walk along the ocean all the way up to Kalk Bay passing the beautiful beach of St. James as you’d go.
Taking the beat up trains out to the coast took about 40 minutes and I’ll never forget the anticipation as we got close to something so beautiful, to the ocean (my deepest love), to the sun, to a kind of peace I have felt only by the ocean. I would catch a few glimpses of the ocean right before you pulled into the Muzienberg stop, my heart would skip a beat.
I can’t say it enough, Cape Town is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to on this earth. As if the picturesque landscape weren’t enough, the culture is also so rich with vibrant life as well. I miss it every day.
