Day3 Kalk Bay Harbour, Cape Town
Voting Day! ...
Public Holiday and I am up n at 'em for a sunrise new ritual that is already feeding me in its spontaneous and surprising manner. Not the easiest to get myself outta bed... but my mind takes me forward a little in the dark's brooding dawn - and it helps, just get up n go...
this morning finds me at Kalk Bay Harbour amongst the fishermen, the boats n flocking birds, the scattering of yellow tinged clouds and a smile on my face. its really so easy to change your world and experience freshness in a totally uncomplicated way
here I am on day3 only and I am already on the other side of heavens bliss. on my own on my challenges but not on my own.
the fishermen greet and meet me and themselves. open and friendly and in from their catch. I get the quick run thro of the three generations on board the approaching boat. its a world of its own embedded with history and tough cold early morning fishing stories. he shouts out his facebook name for me to share some of the pics - but it gets lost in the wind. don't worry - I will be back...
off to cest le vie which is humming with voters from just next door, all propping up their eyelids with a hot cuppacino in a bowl. I sneak to a tiny round table by the side of the sweetie jars - the cutest little mini table made for me and goldilocks
special free feeling to have had a life already before breakfast, people watching with crispy just baked baguette and bowl cupped in my cold paws. have always had admiration for the unique scattering of Kalk Bay and St James locals. unafraid of their quirks, wearing their individuality with humble smiles. the mixtures of humanity here is awe inspiring. living their lives of quiet exuberance with colourful careers and beautiful on the inside children, free to surf and play and explore
blessed to be so close to this part of the world. I miss it. I lived and thrived in it for three years before moving my heart and soul to noordhoek. which I am now blessed to love and cherish too.
A dream I could not have had ... come true
next stop The Foodbarn Deli in Noordhoek for a second cuppa before voting...My other home away from home. it too is unique in the blend of friendlies, always willing to smile and say hallo, leave you in peace to read, or tell you a part of their stories to date.
Warmth and real people, mutual horse admiration club drops in to say hallo and catch up and good to see you, friend and her son and others who live their lives filling my story book with their humour and different take what living their life is all about
off to vote... feeling full of living and life and warmth from people I care about. thank you! See More — at Kalk Bay Harbour.
