Chokka boats at sunrise

A couple of chokka boats at anchor in Algoa Bay at sunrise. Chokka is the squid that calamari is made from and the coast around Algoa Bay and St Francis Bay are the main fishing grounds in South Africa for it. Locally it is known as white gold. The chokka boats normally come into the bays to shelter against strong winds before heading out again.

  1. Gorgeous photo! That reminds me of "red sky at night, sailor's delight; red sky in morning, sailor's warning".

  3. Thank's for the photos of the surrounding areas- great for the tourists.
    But in addition to the postcard shots, how about some "real" shots of the city itself?
    Surely the industrial areas, suburbs and city centre are what a city is all about?
