Kitesurfers near a stranded ship – Flickr pic of the day


This beautiful photograph of the Seli 1, a coal ship from Panama, was taken by our Cape Town. Live it. Love it. group member Craig Strachan aka Craig is shooting.

Craig says, “This ship, originally with 30 000 tons of coal on board, ran aground just off Blouberg in September 2009, and is still there. It is literally a stone’s throw from the beach, and in this picture you can see a number of kitesurfers in front of and around it. By all appearances the ship has become a permanent fixture of our coastline.

“Cape Town Tourism covered the stranding at the time: http://www.capetown.travel/blog/entry/ship_stranded_at_table_view/.”

Do you have images of Cape Town you’d like to share with us? We’d love you to join the Cape Town. Live it. Love it. Flickr group!
