Still beside the seaside, this is Oudekraal which is along Victoria Road between Camps Bay and Llandudno. A popular spot with divers and a great place for a picnic or a braai. You can just make out the white buildings of the Twelve Apostles Hotel in the centre of the photo too. Lion's Head is on the left. The sea is icy cold here - especially in summer when the Southeaster wind, which was pumping today - blows the surface water northwards, and cold water wells up from under the sea causing what is known as upwelling. On the other side of the peninsula, the sea is a totally different temperature.
