Hout Bay seagulls – Flickr pic of the day
“I was stuck in Hout Bay with a spare hour one winter’s morning so I took a stroll on the beach with my camera,” says Cape Town. Live it. Love it. group member Natalie Shutttleworth aka snapclicktripod.
“It was an overcast morning with a brisk wind and all the seagulls were beachside. I took a couple of shots and this photo appeals to me enormously. I hope you enjoy my perspective,” she adds.
Scenic Hout Bay is a vibey coastal town with a lovely swimming beach and a picturesque harbour where you can buy the best fish and chips in the world.
Hout Bay residents are so passionate about where they live, there is a secession movement from the Mother City – look out for the tongue-in-cheek “Republic of Hout Bay” bumper stickers on locals’ cars.
