    Walking along Victoria Road from Hout Bay to Camps Bay is well possible. It took me 2 and a half hours combining physical activity with enjoying spectacular views on the Cape shoreline.

    It is a 13 km walk, but mind the elevation difference (some 160m). The section between Llandudno and Oude Kraal I found the most attractive. Motorized traffic on the road is annoying and sometimes there are cyclists passing by at high speed, but overall it is a very pleasant experience.

    A lovely place for a stroll as long as the wind isn't blowing. Also a nice place to swim if you don't mind the cold water.

    A great welcome, nice atmosphere and excellent selection of beers. Well worth a visit. Make sure to ask for one of their loyalty cards.

    Martin was very accommodating and gave us an inspiring personal viewing of the photographic art that he and his daughter Sam are creating. Their work is visually impressive and often intriguing;it would be hard to imagine anyone not being drawn in by it. Martin's commentary was patient and interesting. He is someone who knows the various layers of his craft and is able to convey it well.

    This workshop/studio is a wonderful example of both community outreach and amazingly creative art using recycled tea-bags, tags, boxes and even the tea. It was a thriving establishment that was devastated by Covid. All the artisans were laid off as the founder was unable to sustain the business. When we stopped by there today (first time visit), three artists had been hired back as of October 1. It is apparently in a much smaller space than before and shares the building with other art exhibitors. I agree that it is impossible to leave without purchasing something in your price range. Beautiful coasters, tea trays, drinking glasses and gift bags to name just a few of the items in the store. Definitely a must visit to support the incredible work being done here and enable more artisans to be re-employed. When you go, take your used teabags and tags, preferably dried out. I was told that they accept and welcome teabags from all over the world and I will be sure to remember that when I return to Cape Town next time. Don't miss this place.
