A Beach Scene

A Beach Scene

On the Southern Cape’s coast we have spectacular diversity: long sweeping sandy beaches, rocky headlands with intriguing rock pools, boulder strewn cliffs and gorges where rivers and forest meet the sea.

If you were walking along a rocky path on a warm day this scene will repeat itself often. It has all the ingredients of a typical  coastal scene; a False Saffron tree (Cassine species) that can withstand salt spray, sun and wind, a Lichen encrusted boulder and a Rock Agamma . The males have a striking breeding display of a magnificent, iridescent blue head which they bob up and down energetically to attract the females.

Another aspect that is typical of our Winter days is be the beautiful clear blue skies.
