Stairway, Plettenberg Bay 2008

Plettenberg Bay, South Africa, is without a doubt my favourite place on earth.  I've been holidaying there since before I went to school and I still try to visit every time I go home.  This photo was taken in Feb 2008 when we spent a week at the Beacon Island Hotel.  The stairs lead from Robberg Beach to the stunning beach houses in the dunes.  Come and find me there if I ever win the lottery ;-)

If you love this photo, please take a look at my Life's a Beach calendar in which it features – the perfect Christmas gift!

This is part of a series of non-food photographs that will be published every Saturday on CookSister. Click here for a full list of photographs previously featured.

Oh I’ve been there, my husband’s cousin wife has brother who actually has a vacation house near Plattenberg Bay. We spend our christmas eve’s and christmas day at their house. We also went to the beach. I don’t recall the name, but it was beautiful.

Aah, Plett… working at the Formosa, doing x-rated things in my tent with a boy from Amanzimtoti, drinking my last tequila, (haven’t touched it in 19 years)body surfing at Lookout, LOTS of good memories and crazy times.
(My ex owns a nightclub there and some trendy bar, will get you to stalk him next time!)

Love the picture! I haven’t visited Plettenberg Bay in ages. We used to go to Beacon Island Hotel too! Had some lovely seafood meals at the posh restaurant there and at another restaurant had butternut soup for the first time. Ahhh…
