I love this picture. It was taken on a vacation back home to Cape Town, South Africa while out to lunch with my family. It reminds me of my home town, my family, the ocean and good food, all of the things I grew up loving.
The name of the restaurant is “Die Strandlooper” which means “the one who walks on the beach.” They serve 10 courses of seafood magic and home made bread, all against the backdrop of strumming guitars, cawing seagulls and what you see above.
If you’re ever in Cape Town (or anywhere on the South African West Coast), you should look it up. And be sure to take a walk on the sand, so you too can be a Strandlooper.
