Buffelsfontein, Cape Point – Flickr pic of the day
Natalie Roos’ body was born in Johannesburg… but her soul was always Capetonian. At the age of 14, Natalie started work in the television industry, presenting popular local kids TV show, KTV. Ten years and another TV job later (presenting celebrity gossip show JIP on Afrikaans music channel MK), Natalie made the move down to Cape Town where she started her blog, Tails of a Mermaid (www.tailsofamermaid.com). Her love for the internet and all things communication-driven became a natural progression to a career in Social Media, where she worked in an agency managing the online presence, content and reputation of various brands.
Natalie’s passions include cats, communication and Cape Town.
Cathy says: "There are so many parts to Cape Point that visitors don't get to see if they only go up to the lighthouse. The lawns in front of the Buffelsfontein Visitor Centre give one a beautiful view down across the dunes to False Bay, where there are often bontebok or eland grazing, and you can see all the way to the Point. This time of year is especially nice, when the grass is greener after the autumn showers, and the krantz aloe bushes are in bloom."
