i didn’t take a lot of photos this holiday because i was either eating, reading, drinking, eating, lying in the sun, snoozing, eating, drinking, walking on the beach, riding my bike, eating, napping etc etc. you know? but i did wander onto the beach one evening before sunset to take these shots. the sky really was all pink & blue! maaagical.

memories

i’m on holiday for a wee while. just over 3 weeks to be exact, boom! i won’t be on the computer much (or at all, hopefully) – but i have set up some posts to go off like clockwork around here. so, to keep going with the summer / holiday spirit…. here are some lovely old beach pics for you:

From 1959 to 1963 my father took photos of ordinary people in Cape Town.

found these amazing vintage shots by liberty littlebasil‘s dad from the beaches & pools of cape town in the memory bane pool group over on flickr. there’s lots more – go have a look.
