The trip to Cape Town was uneventful: The bus service was perfect, on time and safety to boot. We arrived At the bus station within 10 minutes of the projected time. We resided in Fish Hoek with my daughter.
On Tuesday morning we decided to visit the beach. Work at the beach was underway which entailed the removal of kelp, sea-weed and other trash which washed up. The most irritating aspect was the dogs running freely with their owners and no leads and leashes were seen.
If one were to comment on the condition of the town itself the ratings will surpass most of the other towns with a broad margin. Fish Hoek has an atmosphere of the days of yore but still exists in the present and “now”. Buildings from the past century still stand proudly and mingle well with the modern ilk.
The attempts to keep the town clean is almost tangible, provocative and compulsive: especially when the town is viewed all-around with the mountains in the background and lending a table cloth from the neighbors. The hexagon configuration of the roads against the mountains is enough to drive any sane driver around the bend. But the roads are in a good condition.
To the uninitiated a walk from Emerald Street to the beach can be a rather daunting task and one could get lost in the maze of streets: Like I was. The down side of Fish Hoek is the tendency to use the roads as a racing track at knock-off time.
