It is sad to see Port Elizabeth's beaches empty in summer due to Covid19, but whether empty or full of sun worshippers, they stay exotically beautiful.
Towards the end of 2020 the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality's tourism department set up two selfie frames, one at Shark Rock Pier and the other at the Donkin Reserve. A walk and ice cream on the beachfront led us to the pier and Miggie could not wait to get onto the frame to have her … Continue reading Shark Rock Pier selfie frame
It's a blue sky day in Port Elizabeth and I just could not help slipping out the office for a quick walk. Need some more Vitamin Sea and an injection of inSunlin.
The past two weeks have been hectic. I've been to the SATSA conference in Stellenbosch and a Karoo Heartland meeting in Jansenville, spent way too much time catching up (and I'm not even there yet) and in the process of all of this missed a few posts in the last week. I even thought about … Continue reading A beachfront New Year timelapse
Standing at the rock below Something Good (the one with the hole through which the waves crash) and looking back towards Hobie Beach, Bird Rock is quite a prominent landmark in front of you. This photo was taken on a rough day with waves smashing over Bird Rock on the right.
A couple of weeks ago the sea was slightly angry one morning and as I was driving down Marine Drive I noticed that the waves out Pollok Beach way looking quite impressive. Grabbed my camera and headed over to Lovers' Lane, snapping the waves smashing right over Bird Rock.

Luckily I had my phone and I perched myself on a rock next to the pier for a picture. Seconds later that … Continue reading Shark Rock Pier on a Sunday afternoon
We headed down to the beachfront this afternoon to pop in at the Homemakers Expo at the Boardwalk and afterwards went for a walk along the pier to enjoy the glorious winters weather. Standing out on the pier I realised how long its been since we've done this as a family. Have you been to … Continue reading Enjoying the view from the pier
One of the things I like about this time of the year is the fact that we have so little wind. Over the last few days we've had some stunning days with striking sunsets, but this morning I swung past the beach before work and got a slightly post sunrise photo. The start of another … Continue reading Another beautiful morning
While deciding what to post tonight I started wondering what the first picture was I posted on PE Daily Photo. I went digging through the archives and arrived back at 15 March 2009 when I took over Port Elizabeth Daily Photo from Sue and Max Hoppe and posted my first photo on this blog. It … Continue reading My first photo on Port Elizabeth Daily Photo was…
