Saturday a Spot: A Map of Kalk Bay…

February 12th, 2012 · 14 Comments

In last weeks fabulous Friday fun Post I mentioned the You-Topia Competition on one of my favorite spots, They Draw and Travel. Anyway the week rolled round and inspiration struck and I discovered that I had to draw a map for one of our favorite spots too… It is clearly the year of lots of art projects!!!


So here’s a potential map of Kalk Bay:

The father person and I went for an amble through our favorite town, Kalk Bay looking for details… and there were lots of teeny tiny details that normally we overlook in our dash to get to The Ice Cafe or the Book Shop. So we started at one end…
