Betty’s Bay

This summer holiday started in October 2010, when I decided I wanted to go stay somewhere pretty in December of that year. The holiday accommodation places all laughed me off the phone. Apparently, you can’t book anything for December after about June of the same year. So in 2011, I phoned so early that they laughed again: it’s only January, they said, try again around Easter.

So now I am the queen of Booking Early. Beach house, Betty’s Bay. I’d never been before, but will so be going back. Loved those wild beaches, and the mountainous walks (many thanks to the intrepid Dr Horsnell who leapt out of beds, regardless of lateness of nights before, to escort us along river beds and mountain trails).

Kolya heroically scaled the wooden ladders up the Luiperd’s Kloof (and made me promise to take him up Lion’s Head sometime soon), and we were all rewarded with waterfalls along the way. Altogether loveliness.
