Going … somewhere …
To be honest, these last three weeks were a whirlwind. The one moment we were still enjoying our quiet days in Langebaan and life’s slow pace in this beautiful seaside town (all while we were planning our next camping weekend).
But, after one phone call, an on-line interview and some e-mails that were going back and forth … we were packing our bags to leave our beloved Langebaan on the West Coast.
This move will be for 12 months (Berto’s contract is for a year, but this might change – time will tell) and we’re not quite sure where we’re heading … we might go to Cape Town, Gauteng or even the Eastern Cape. Our life is truly an adventure …
During the next week or two, things will get clearer … but for now, we have packed 4 suitcases (for a year) and are staying with friends in Cape Town while Berto’s getting to know his new company … and, more importantly, where are we going to live for the next year!
Before we left Langebaan, we took one last stroll on the beach at the lagoon. We will miss our most favourite place in South Africa … but hopefully will be able to explore new places (and also share these with you).
Come and enjoy a walk along our beautiful Langebaan lagoon:
Although it is already fall here in South Africa and temperatures are a bit cooler, we still saw people enjoying the sun – whether it was on the white sandy beach or at the beach cafés.
There were not much wind and the waves were probably not big enough for surfing, but some of the younger guys did try to ‘ride’ a few of the smaller waves. We also saw a guy taking his kayak out on the lagoon … perfect weather for relaxing in the water!
Sometimes, while we’re walking on the beach, it’s also good to look down to see the lovely shells. I’m always amazed to see that no shell is the same, unique in its own way.
Should you want to take an easier walk along the lagoon, there is the opportunity to enjoy a lovely stretch of boardwalk. There are also some benches where you can sit down while looking over the lagoon.
Normally, after a walk on the beach, we would find our way to one of the restaurants/bars on the beach to enjoy a cold drink. Today, on our last day of enjoying the lagoon views, we headed over to Roxi Beach bar to enjoy a “bye for now” drink.
It is with mixed feelings that we’re leaving Langebaan … we will miss the beauty of this West Coast seaside town, but we’re also excited to explore new places … where ever this might be. For us, it’s a new chapter in our life journey – let the adventure begins!
