For the average Tom, Dick and Harry there are many places to stay in South Africa. As life goes however, it isn’t always possible for the most of us to pick and choose where we establish ourselves. Much of the reasons behind it are led by circumstances which we cannot control.
But in the end everybody wants a little cottage by the sea (“huisie by die see”). So when it finally becomes financially viable and/or when it is time to retire, everyone agrees: down to the sea-side!
But why? The wind is always blowing. It rains a lot. So why would people tend to stay along the coast. There must be something there that draws the average spirit… Could it be something magical?
