Thanks to dad’s amazing fractional ownership of a luxury house in Pinnacle Point Estate (out in Mossel Bay), we end up visiting that area quite a lot – which isn’t a bad thing given that it is of course the start of the famous Garden Route of South Africa!
Last year March saw Jessica and I take a drive up for some alone time with Granny and Grandpa, and while we did jam our long weekend full of outings and activities, we also spent an inordinate amount of time zipping about the estate in the golf cart and taking photos – with Jess adamant on spending time either behind the wheel or behind the camera!
Of course, the thing about Pinnacle Point Estate is that there isn’t exactly a lack of photo worthy subjects.
With so many beautifully designed (if monochromatic) luxury houses dotted along the estate, and given our lack of actual camera equipment (i.e. no zoom), a lot of Jessica and my drives were simply dedicated to pretty house hunting, the result being a lot of neat photos grabbed from the process.
Apart from all the pretty home, there is of course then the photogenic natural aspect of the place, the birdlife, the landscape, the seascape, the caves, the fynbos, the Oyster Bay beach, and the cliffs – not to mention the other man made additions such as the photogenic clubhouse and its restaurant and newly-completed spa, the cliffside boardwalk, the magnificent golf course, the resort’s circular pool, etc.
So basically a never ending stream of pretty things to grab a photo or two of then.
Bonus: The guys over at Pinnacle Point Estate commissioned a promotional video to be made, the end result giving you a rather good idea of what the place looks like (not to mention offers):
Pinnacle Point Estate is pretty easy to find actually – just head straight towards Tsogo Sun’s Garden Route Casino and you’ll stumble right through their front door (or better put, entrance booms)!
