Yesterday Hermanus was hit by a late winter storm, part of a huge low pressure system that is affecting the Western and Southern Cape. After a downpour, Renee and I ventured out and witnessed some of the biggest seas we have ever seen here. At Siever’s Punt we thought we had parked in a waterfall, when massive waves threw up spray that drenched us completely. The Mossel River was in spate and the beach below Kwaaiwater (Shelly, or Bessie’s Beach) was being hit by one huge wave after another, covering it with foam and debris, like we had never seen previously. Waves breaking over the New Harbour wall were also spectacular and the images below speak for themselves!
