Our hometown Kalk Bay, South Africa

Where?  It's in South Africa.  It's in the Western Cape.  It's just about the most southerly part of South Africa.  It's where the wind is our doctor, the sea is our artist and the mountains our home.  I love this part of the world - it's wild and quaint, cold and hot, we live in an amazing environment where you can find nature reserves, whales, fishing villages, history and colour ..... lots and lots of colour!

Kalk Bay is in the Southern Peninsula which also includes the following places:  Hout Bay, Chapman's Peak Drive, Noordhoek, Kommetjie, Scarborough, Cape Point, Simon's Town, Fish Hoek, St James and Muizenberg.

We have lived in this area for the last 2 years and I still haven't had enough of exploring this wonderful piece of South Africa.  Every weekend there is an opportunity to visit another part of the Cape, which we haven't yet discovered or seen. Our children love the fact that on any given day, we can climb in our car, drive 20 minutes and find something new to experience.

I found a lovely clip (though slightly outdated:) to show you where we live.


  1. Thanks for the trip, and I didn't even have to leave my couch!

  2. LOL, glad you liked it but definitely worth visiting!


Go ahead, leave a comment! I would love to hear from you!
