“In truth, to attain to interior peace, one must be willing to pass through the contrary to peace. Such is the teaching of the Sages.” – Swami Brahmanada
It was “just another sunrise at 2nd Beach Port St Johns“. A few late night party chaps stopped for a while in their car to shoot selfies, two crayfish salesmen walked past, the receding tide crashed medium waves into the rocks where I was and at The Gap; otherwise the beach was empty and still. Nearby, across the road behind me, Amapondo Backpackers / Amapondo IBackpackers was still asleep.

— at Port St John
I was lucky enough to have some time after work late afternoon on Mon the 22nd of September to have a grand filter coffee at Amapondo Backpackers and then head onto 2nd Beach at Port St Johns (Transkei – South Africa) with my camera. I was not that lucky as the wind was howling, gusting 30 km/h perhaps, and blowing onto the lens. So it was hold onto your tripod and wipe your filter all the time stuff. At least I managed to get a photo of The Gap. The photo turned out fairly sharp with minimal spots to spot heal. I promised the barman some photos; a few more will follow. BTW: it was not as bright and colourful that afternoon as the photo shows 🙂
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -Mark Twain
