I have been visiting the Westcoast National Park for years now and never turned of to Tsaarbank…
This time we decided to go and have a look hoping that we don’t need a 4×4. Honestly I was under the impression that it was just a heap of white sand…. Well I could not have been more wrong… It is absolutely stunning and I want to kick myself everytime I think of what great photo opportunities I have missed….
I took some awesome photos of the waves crashing against the rocks. I only stayed in the parking lot because dad was with me and I don’t like leaving him alone. Dad would not have minded if I wandered of to explore more but that’s just not me.
There is nothing better than to visit the park when you have someone with you that shares in your love for nature and photography.
While busy writing this post I had a light bulb moment. Maybe I must plan a day trip and we can spend the day at Tsaarbank. There’s a nice beach and great picnic and braai area…
As we entered the park from the Langebaan entrance our first stop is the Seeberg Birdhide.
Over the past few years visiting the park one notice the change in scenery. I love walking on the walkway and capturing my surroundings.
But that day we were not able to leisurely strole down the wooden walkway as always. It started raining. We were very happy about the rain though. Our dams in the Western Cape was at a critical low before the winter and we needed every drop of water we could get.
From a photographers point of view. A cloudy day always makes beautiful photos and the light is perfect. Only down side was the flowers did not open until it was a bit warmer…. But I still had the beautiful landscapes…..
I hope you enjoyed your walk with us. Our next stop will be The Seeberg lookout…..
Well after our quick stop in Hopefield we were on our way to Yzerfontein to have some breakfast at the farm stall there… On our way I realized I took the wrong turn off I was supposed to go through Darling and not Hopefield. This was not a trainsmash instead we headed to Langebaan.
We went to the beach area and parked the car. It was early and most of the businesses was still closed. Then dad showed me that Driftwoods just put out their sign. I asked them if they were open for breakfast yet. The manager said they are busy prepping the kitchen but we are more than welcome to have a cup of coffee so long.
It was a beautiful cloudy and cool morning and we wanted a table with a nice view. We ordered our coffee and started going through the menu to see what we would like for breakfast. As luck would have it I had to pick up on a typo on their new menu’s. Yes I think I am cursed I always pick up on simple stuff like that.
It was not long after they served us our coffee that the waiter said they are ready to take our order…. When dad ordered his breakfast the waiter looked as if he never heard of it before. He asked dad if he can please say it again. Dad repeated his order. I could clearly see the waiter was a bit confused. I then showed the waiter the two menus and he called the manager. We all had a good laugh over the typo.
I can absolutely with no doubt in my mind refer Driftwood’s for your next or future visit to Langebaan. The service is excellent, the food delicious and the staff was very friendly and one felt at home…
We are off to the Westcoast National Park…. Watch this space…
