Kings Beach - the good, the bad and the ugly

Every now and again one comes across a gem that you did not know existed, like this wetland at Kings Beach, which is made brighter by these gazanias.
In the background you can see one of the fuel tanks at the tank farm and the manganese ore dumps, that will hopefully be relocated to Coega. These have always been a blight in the area and all efforts to have them moved, up to now, have proved fruitless.


  1. Hello,
    I know this is a bit off your topics, but I came across your beautiful picture of The Grand Hotel. I'm a frelance writer, doing a little piece on jazz spots in SA. Could you help by telling me where the hot and happening jazz spots are in PE? I'm in Cape Town and haven't been to PE in 10 years (I studied at Rhodes).
    Thanks very much,

  2. hi Briony. We are boring old farts who don't go out much at night, but I have posted your query on the forum of MyPE, a brilliant interactive community site for PE (link on our sidebar) and hopefully some of the more op en wakker members will provide answers. I'll keep you posted!
