**** Route plotted here ****

After voting in our national election in the morning, we met up near the lifesaver's clubhouse on Woodbridge Island for a walk along Milnerton Beach in the afternoon. It was a very grey day.

Some brave folk paddled in the chilly Atlantic.

We walked in a southerly direction. Even on a cloudy day, the view of Table Mountain, Devil's Peak and Lion's Head is wonderful from this beach.

This is a good beach for interesting stones, shells and washed-up seaweed.

There were sections of beach strewn with pebbles.

And although it wasn't busy today, there was plenty of evidence that the beach is well-used!

We walked to the end of the beach. From here we could look back up the channel between the island and the mainland towards Milnerton.

Lion's Head and Signal Hill could be seen across the bay.

On the stroll back this guy buzzed past us in his craft.

It looked lots of fun!
