Don't worry Optimist I'm still here. Not very often I will admit and for the very reasons you have already stated. I wonder just how many people there are that do actually post on a regular, or fairly regular, basis? Role call, from memory

Re: The Lounge

So few regular people posting on the forum now, and with little to say... in many respects with good reason... so I guess I'm largely gone again as well.

 

To those still trying, thanks.

Re: The Lounge

I'll make an honest confession here and state that for some unknown reason I've never, as far as I can recall, been to Clifton Beach. Think once long LONG ago I did walk down the pathway to the beach but we turned around and went back to the road. Or did we take a brief walk on the beach itself? This would have been at least sixty years back so excuse me if my memory doesn't recall this visit. 

Did swim in the pool alongside at Camps Bay beach but because it's a tidal pool the water does have a chance to warm up by a degree or two. But basically the water all along the West Coast is pretty cold. When we wanted to go to the beach, in my later years, it was always to either the Strand or Gordon's Bay where the water is from the Indian Ocean and is therefore a bit warmer than that on the West Coast side which is fed by the Atlantic Ocean. Indian Ocean also feeds the Muizenberg area so I suppose it would be similar in temperature to Gordon's Bay and the Strand. 

Don't know what Capetonians there are on this forum who could perhaps give further information regarding this subject. Or if anyone is even interested.

Re: The Lounge

I always thought Clifton was the worst.

 

And Muizenberg about the warmest? (Although that since looked too enhabited by low-life characters the last time I was there.)

GeoffD they make us tough here in the permanent holiday land. Man Wink

OK. Not THAT tough. We, in the Western Cape have, I think, the best beaches in the country but what we don't have is the best oceans for swimming in. The water along the West Coast, which includes Blaauwberg is ..... freezing even in summer. Yes, one can just about bear it but those waters are still cold when one first gets in. After awhile the body adapts and it's then not too bad. But initially it takes some getting used to. Don't know when last I've been in the water at Blaauwberg. Last recollection of mine from going into the water at that beach is of my legs, ankles downwards, going completely numb. Didn't venture in any deeper. 

But, no, I'm not off to Blaauwberg today. And definitely would never consider going to swim there in the heart of winter. Even on the hottest day in summer I don't think I'd be going.

 

Citanul on the other hand, when he's not catching up on all his cricket news and research, may have a different story to tell.

Re: The Lounge

Refreshing? Is that what you call it? 

You need to be a brass monkey to take a dip at Blaauwbergstrand! Presume you are really going there to see the spring tide as the moon is full at the moment.
