Robberg Beach, Plettenberg Bay – March 2011

My family has spent countless happy hours on this magnificent beach, so it was only fitting that this week we scattered my dad’s ashes there.  Every time I find a pansyshell from now on, I will picture him and my mom gently pushing it onto the beach for me to find.

This is part of a series of non-food photographs that will be published every Saturday on CookSister – previously featured  photographs can be viewed on the Saturday Snapshots archive pages.  Photos featured in Saturday Snapshots are available to buy as high-quality greeting cards or prints in my RedBubble store, or even as gorgeous A3-size 2011 CookSister calendars for foodies, for London-lovers, Italophiles or beach lovers

If you want a custom calendar with your own selection of photos, starting in a month other than January, please e-mail me and we can discuss your requirements.  They make great gifts, for friends or for yourself :)

I know Robberg Beach very well and I think it is a wonderful place to be laid to rest…
My deepest condolences.

Gorgeous photo of hte beach. I’m sure you’ll be finding plenty of pansy shells from now on. It’s a lovely image, your parents conspiring to push them your way, like parents filling Christmas stockings for sleeping children!
