01 Grotto Beach Hermanus Western Cape ZA (1024x740)

After exploring the whale museum and shopping for my birthday until I knew I’d better stop I drove out of town a short ways and found a sign pointing toward Grotto Beach.

It was so peaceful to walk along the beach, very few others around.

Listening to the waves, smelling the sea, feeling a breeze, looking at life and gathering shells.04 Grotto Beach Hermanus Western Cape ZA (1024x611)

I’ve always considered birthdays to be special, a day to do whatever you choose. Definitely not work. I once had to quit a job  to get my birthday off, after a two week notice of course. Nice that I work summers now so I don’t have to do that again.05 Grotto Beach Hermanus Western Cape ZA (1024x768)

I returned to Anchors Rest via a grocery store where I bought dinner and sweet treats. Then walked to the coast trail and watched the sun set over Walker Bay.

My journey was way too quickly coming to an end and the next day I’d be heading to the Cape of Good Hope.
