Saturday Spot: Another Kalk Bay Amble…

January 7th, 2013 · 6 Comments

What can I say, we lived in Kalk Bay when we were newly weds and we just can’t get enough of this little seaside town…

We always said we would be back here and for now it is in the form of Saturday morning ambles…

After a couple of weeks on leave The Father Person is returning to work on Monday… everyone was feeling just a little grim about it and so we needed a pick-me-up… and I am not afraid to announce: “ice-cream for breakfast.”

Followed by a wander through the stalls and stores…

And lots for everyone to look at…

And a bounce into the bookshop… as one must!!!

And don’t you love a bookshop with places to actually read!!!

A table and chairs…

And beautiful books…

And hand a child a phone while your hands are full and now we have a book wish list!!! Everyone wants to know who Claude is!!!

And a trip to the bakery…

For a snack…

Street racing for folk that had enough of poking around in stores saying look at this and look at that…

A trail through the streets above town…

Think how fit I would be if I had to clamber up and down these stairs for a fine coffee!!!

DSC_0116

And I could live off Ponder Road…

DSC_0115

Though it isn’t a road at all, just a whole lot more stairs!!! Gasp!!!

DSC_0325

We imagined living in these huge houses… I think even we would find ourselves a little lost!!!

DSC_0114 DSC_0111 DSC_0110 DSC_0108 DSC_0106 DSC_0118 DSC_0119

And this one was a blank slate… garden cleared and ready for renovation… yes we could imagine many lovely projects!!!

And then a linger in the park…

DSC_0184

As… bounce
DSC_0183

One… bounce
DSC_0180

Must… bounce!!!
DSC_0123

Where our kids so love the merry-go-round… and I have to say their quest for speed leaves me gasping for air and looking away and lesser hearted parents gathering their children away for snacks… until mine are quite done with their escapades…

And then it was time to head home… past the shark…

The flags…

DSC_0208

And the train…

DSC_0337

And the harbour…

Hope you all had a fun weekend!!!

    What a delightful way to spend a Saturday! I wish we could all come join you for an amble – we’re feeling pretty homesick for Kalk Bay & you guys these days. Lots of love!

    Hay Shells, I have to be honest thai doesn’t happen very often… but sometimes we need a little enthusiasm in our day – and ice-cream is always a good place to start!!! Hope you have a great day!!!

    Hay Laura, How wonderful to hear from you!!! It is perfect summer weather over here… and I imagine easy to be homesick when the skies are blue and the days look glorious!!! We are thinking of you all as usual… lots of lekker love…
