On the last day before I returned home Jackie and I went to Jacobsbaai a small little town situated between Vredenburg and Saldanhabaai. There are a few stories to how Jacobsbaai got it’s name. One of these is that the English king entrusted the piece of land to a local known as ‘Jacob.’
I found Jacobsbaai very peaceful. The whole town has dirt roads this help to keep the speeding at bay. While driving from one little beach to the next we spotted the following birds, African Stone Chat, Southern Black Koraan, Egret’s and Kittlitz’s Plover. The little fisherman’s boats all over the town gives it a small fishing community feel.
The show of wildflowers was absolutely a feast for the eye. The most beautiful scenery yellow, white, orange and a spot of pink here and there. When you go down on your knees you see the bed of flowers and the blue water of the ocean.
Even the local animals are so friendly. When Jackie and I got out the car to go and take some photo’s on one of the beaches a little Dutchound came to greet us. As Jackie was taking photo’s he went and sit on her lap. It was so adorable.
Before we returned home we made a quick stop at Bokkomlaan and then when we turned onto the road to St Helena Bay we saw a lovely rainbow. A perfect ending to a perfect photography Breakaway…
Thank you Jackie and Steven for a lovely time….
