Once again, as the festive season approaches, it was time to catch up with my Tokai, Cape Town neighbours Ian and Lily Forbes, who were battling to wind down work activity associated with their electrical business, late on a Friday afternoon. In the midst of all of this grandson James was being entertained.

As is tradition upon every visit, I join them for an early morning dip in the tidal pool at Kalk Bay followed by a coffee at one of the multitude of cafes on the main road, alongside quirky Bohemian shops.
