A pristine environment of sand dunes, fynbos and freshwater lagoon. In the spring the Southern Right whales swim close to the shore but now in the autumn there are only gulls and sea spray. The beach seems drab and uninteresting in the grey evening light until you look closely and see delicate pink shells, fluorescent green algae, bright blue jellyfish and seaweed the colour of amethyst stones. If you are lucky, low angles of light will illuminate the crests of the waves and the beauty of it will hurt your heart a little. You have to be patient, look carefully and ignore the people waiting, impatiently.
