This photograph was taken on Muizenberg beach in the early evening. Children were swimming and building sandcastles, and the surfers were out enjoying the waves while the sun set behind the mountains. Would you believe me if I told you I woke the next morning to hail beating against my windows in gale force wind?

This certainly is a land of contrasts … even when we ignore the politics and talk about the weather.
