A stormy day

The Cape coast is being battered by gale force winds and I believe the swells are running at 7 metres. Since we arrived last night the wind has been whistling through the buildings, with an erie sound. We took a drive to Cape St Francis this morning, only to be severely battered by the wind and covered in sea spray. It was really cool.

We we a bit late for the sunrise, but the view was still great.



The waves on the wild side were giving the coast a good pounding.

Rollers coming in at seal point.

Around the corner, between Seal Point and Shark Point the sea was flatter, but still spectacular.

This series of photos is spectacular. The first photo with that magic light and the stormy sea; the last photo with the waves which make a water screen are just breathtaking.
