Rest Stop!


To do the useful thing,
to say the courageous thing,
to contemplate the beautiful thing:
that is enough for one man's life.

- T.S. Eliot

Kommetjie (pronounced kom-meh-chee):
Atlantic Ocean side of Cape peninsula

One of the benches along the Kommetjie boardwalk on the way to the lighthouse*. If you look very carefully above the horizon you will see a flock of birds.

The smell of the ocean, the roar of the waves and the start of autumn's sunlight on one's back - made this public holiday a fabulous one. Hope yours was a goodie too.

It always intrigues me that you are beginning the autumn season as we start spring. This is a lovely spot whatever the season.
