Lunch with seagulls

A lunchtime business meeting in Cape Town can look like this

which is probably quite different to how it might look in any of these places, helpfully signposted

I was not doing business. I was just enjoying the feeling of having my bare feet in the warm sand under my table

which was only a couple of feet from the edge of the ocean

and enjoying these views from my glass of rosé 

... an ever changing passage of yachts

a couple of dolphins playing around this boat

and hopeful seagulls on the lookout for lunch

Bare feet in the sand, my solitary, spontaneous lunch on the beach was fabulous grilled calamari (my favourite thing at this place), salad, a glass of wine and espresso. Gulls, boats, ocean and sunshine tout compris, my bill came to all of £12 ($18). 

Which had me wondering as I left reluctantly (nobody rushes you here), how many other places in the world like this there could be ...

If  you visit Cape Town, you'll find this wondrous beach café here, not far from the harbour and waterfront. Just don't tell anyone else.
