Kalk Bay is my happy place .  .  . well, to be  honest  .  .  .  one of my happy places

While driving to Kalk Bay from Somerset West you come across this beautiful road along the sea.  It is as if you drive on the beach and at this point the butterflies begin to fly in my stomach!!

When I was 5 years old, my mom always told me that happiness was the key to life.  When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up.  I wrote down “happy”.  They told me I didn’t understand the assignment and I told them they didn’t understand life.

Olympia Cafe

This special little unpretentious cafe is across the harbour.  We usually start our day here with  coffee and something sweet

I can’t resist the wonderful pastries at Olympia’s Bakery Shop.  I feel a bit guilty (NOT!!) walking out with armsful of treats
