Lighthouse Reflections – L’ Agulhas, Western Cape – February 2010
In that happy place where everything seemed so simple and obvious, my inability to face up to my condition was breathtakingly stupid. It came back to kiss me on the ass big time! Serves me right for being in such idiotic denial! Hey, but at least I was home…. back in my beloved Africa – and here, on this glorious sunny day in the L’Agulhas lighthouse at the very tip of the continent where two mighty oceans meet - just a week or so away from The Big Scare.
Cape Agulhas is the official point at which the cold Benguela current of the Atlantic Ocean and the strong Aghulhas current of the Indian Ocean meet. Technically speaking it is the southernmost point in the continent of Africa, but it is not as well known or, some say, as beautiful as the Cape of Good Hope. I, however, delighted in its wild and rugged beauty the day we visited from our gorgeous base in the Hemel and Aarde Valley in the Cape Overberg.
