Summer Season 2015 is rushing towards us at breakneck pace, and so pleasingly it’s quite nice to see our little Blue Flag beach in Gordon’s Bay undergoing a bit of a makeover.
Up until recently, the beach had become a little… unfriendly, in terms of it being very rocky as a changing current flow was slowly but surely taking more and more sand away from the small beach and depositing it in the entrance to the harbour/marina (itself not a very good thing for all the yacht owners with vessels moored there).
I see that’s now all been changed though, with the beach being properly bulldozed (with possibly more sand added?), the result being a once again sandy, pristine little beach, tucked away from the wind and the perfect tanning spot for the hordes of Stellenbosch students (from where this little beach is traditionally rumoured to get its name from).
Signage is being replaced, things are being fixed and sanded down, and from the look of it, even a new lick of paint is about to be applied to the standing structures.
Looks like everything will be ready and waiting for when the December holidays finally hit our little town! :)
