Summer and sunset skies up the West coast

summer home

Following on from a previous blog about the meanderings up the west coast to Shelley Point in summer, I thought I’d insert this little picture up of some gorgeous white clouds accented by the dark silhouette of a house.

We get gorgeous clouds in Cape Town, especially in winter, and this is also true up the west coast, where I have travelled to Langebaan, Paternoster, Yzerfontein, Churchhaven, and now Shelley Point, too. They are all delightful in their own unique way.

Quick English lesson: ‘Unique’ means “one of a kind”. Many people use unique incorrectly then when they add adjectives to their explanations of things that are, indeed, unique. Something can’t be more unique, very unique, or totally unique. It’s a standalone word, like perfect, absolute, or total. These words are absolute modifiers (among other things) and although many people disagree with me (and others, I’ll have you know) I do think it makes sense to let words have their proper meaning. Also, I believe that every human is special and perfect in that feel good way that great animations love to depict¬†(about the beauty and importance of the individual).

Anyway, back to the task at hand. These towns are unique and no two are alike. You reading this are unique and I hope you know it too. So, if you go any of these towns listed before this summer, I hope that you have a “uniquey” unique experience. In fact, I think you couldn’t do otherwise.
