**** Route plotted here ****
We parked in Stadler Road in Bloubergstrand and took a wander northwards.
I enjoyed checking out the houses along the way. There's such a mix along here - lots of modern mansions, but some cute thatched cottages and scruffy old holiday houses too, as well as plenty of regular suburban homes.
We made our way down onto to the sand, past the rocks and onto the main beach. There were lots of people out and about, but this is a lovely wide sandy beach and there's plenty of room for everyone.
The new Big Bay development here had sprung up so quickly. A couple of years ago there was just dune beside the beach, but now there are rows of houses and a huge shopping centre. Oh my, it is horrible!
The beach was littered with a variety of colourful seaweeds. I love them!
The fisherman were on the rocks - surrounded by sea - so planning on staying there until the tide turned I presume :)
On the walk back we got fabulous views back to the city, with Devil's Peak, Table Mountain and Lion's Head clearly visible. Perfection.
