Travel. Summer in Cape Town has many facets but for me, it is the beach and the ocean . Here we are looking at the wide sweep of the bay at nearby Fish Hoek - at sunrise, crowded on New Year's Day and by the light of the rising moon. Young people enjoy the ocean, a mother and daughter relish the sunlight, a pair of oriental stone sculptures find a home on a patio and the sun sets through an iron gate. Magic!
