I’ve already mentioned that last year’s Touchwork and Hypenica year end function saw the teams go tropical and enjoy a colourful Hawaiian themed get together (complete with a belly dancing routine for some or other reason) at the Monkey Valley Resort in Noordhoek.
What I hadn’t realised (thanks to a forgotten folder now found on my laptop) is that I never actually got around to mentioning what we did to celebrate the year of work in 2016 – a small oversight which I’ll now quickly rectify in order to fulfill this site’s these days mandate as being somewhat of a photo diary for my life.
In a nutshell, we celebrated a prosperous year with a pirate themed lunch at Outspan in Kalk Bay. Entertainment came in the form of a pretty good (if slightly strange) improv comedy troupe (which surprisingly included YouTube comedienne Anne Hirsch as a member), and an even better reggae playing band, while lunch revolved very much around some exceptionally good yellow fin tuna steaks.
Entertaining, tasty and an opportunity to grab some photos along Boyes Drive. Can’t really complain about that now can I? ;)
Oh, and in case you are wondering about the Shark Spotters hut up on Boyes Drive, it’s actually one of eight such shark lookout points (scattered along the False Bay coastline) operated by the team.
This pioneering shark safety and research organisation has been operating since 2004 (it was founded in response to a spate of shark attacks happening at the time), and does fantastic work in both shark research and keeping bathers safe by providing a well run early warning system.
Shark Spotters is now the primary shark safety strategy used in Cape Town, and their well built website (complete with stats) is well worth a proper browse!
