Hippie van at Chapman’s Peak – Flickr pic of the day
Venu says, “This picture was taken on our way back from our awesome trip to Cape Point, at around 18h00. On this memorable day we randomly saw several whales by just driving around the coast. We stopped on the coastal road near Chapman’s Peak and admired the sunset after a long journey which began at 07h00 in the morning.
“We chose this spot because we also wanted to have a closer look at this Volkswagen type 2, I think, a hippie van. It was indeed hippie; there were random things inside the cabin and we absolutely relished it. I took this shot with the mountains and the sea on each side. It was only afterward, when I got home, that I found out how brilliant it was. I should mention that this shot, along with the movie Little Miss Sunshine, actually inspired me to become a huge fan of the Volkswagen. I will own one like this one day.”
