Another view of the beach

Another view of the beach

To show off the beach a little, today we're posting another photograph from Llandudno. The village of Llandudno boasts some of the most expensive property in South Africa.

As you can see, the houses are built on a slope. The streets wind in a seemingly unpredictable pattern amongst the houses, and access to the beach is quite tricky since there's only a very small parking area. This means that most visitors have to park quite high up the hill, away from the beach. Our visit was worth the walk though!

Llandudno – a truly awesome beach

Llandudno - a truly awesome beach

Llandudno beach is a few kilometres from Camps Bay and Clifton (closer to Cape Point). It's a spot that many surfers do - and all surfers really must - visit. Today (can you believe!) is the first time that Kerry-Anne and I have visited this particular spot. It was a really hot Friday afternoon (at around 17h00) and the beach was filled with people tanning, playing cricket and throwing frisbees.

The guy in the photo was running into the waves with his bodyboarding fins on. It was really funny (have you ever watched someone trying to run with fins on?), although I think his mate (whom Kerry-Anne said was watching me from behind) must have thought I was a freak - taking snaps of his buddy running through the waves.
