    Just shows you how much I frequent Durbanville – didn’t even know there was one there. Did recognize it as a mill immediately though – nice angle :)

    Neither did I Deems! I did a double-take when I spotted it down a side street.

    Ali, you mean that you think it’s Mostert’s Mill? ;)

    RiD1, yeah, that’s the one that I thought everyone would think it was. But no no – I’ll post another pic in a sec or three.

    Craig – a lighthouse with a weird-trellis running down the side? :P I know the lighthouse that you’re thinking of. It’s interesting how obvious it seems to me (that it’s a mill) but then I’ve seen the full picture so it’s difficult for me to see it as anything else.

    Nope, Paul. One can read your question like “what unspecific object (house, dog, windmill etc.) does the picture show”. And therefore, I second Deems that it is a windmill. Since I have been to ZA only for half a year, I’m not really able to identify object except of typical tourist attractions or landmarks like the Table Mountain or the Soweto Twin Towers. :)

    Any one of you old enough to remember Spotty Dog on the way to Muizenberg? It was a snack bar built to resemble a dog. Unfortunately it was torn down. Another landmark gone.

    Nope, afraid I’m far too young to remember Spotty. But yes, it’s a pitty that things are sometimes taken down / dismantled. Sometimes it’s necessary, and at other times it’s just on someone’s whim. I guess though, owners can do with their property as they please. :)
