We are still in the full swing of summer here in South Africa! Which mean, enjoying a leisurely ride along the ocean is always a good idea.
Trekoskraal is a beach close to our home (only a 30-minute drive) and is the ideal place from where one can enjoy the pristineness of nature (is that even a word).
We used to enjoy wild camping weekends here, but unfortunately overnight camping is not allowed anymore (this is a privately-owned farm next to the beach) and we now only visit Trekoskraal to catch crayfish and to enjoy a day next to the sea.
Although it was misty, it was not cold at all … in fact, the fresh sea breeze was just what we needed after a couple of hot days. We love to open our car windows, drive slowly and breathe the fresh sea air. Here are a few pictures we took on our drive …
On our way back, we stopped every now and then to walk around and even get into the cold Atlantic water (though, just knee-high).
As we left the sea and got back on the main gravel road, we saw the farmer’s cattle relaxing in the field.
A visit to Trekoskraal is medicine for my soul and always puts me in a relaxed mood. And how fortunate are we, that it’s literally just around the corner from our home.
To conclude our day, we had a sundowner drink at a friend’s house … with an amazing view over the Langebaan lagoon.
We hope, wherever you are in the world, that the photos of the sea will have a relaxing effect on you as well.
