Something magical happens to your head when you start packing for a seaside holiday. And when you crest that hill after a journey punctuated by burger burps and catfights and some really strange radio, the brightest lightbulb in the car shouts:

And everyone goes ga-ga. Family feuds are temporarily suspended as you enter the coastal town in a fevered state of anticipation. You know the rest. You’ve probably been there many times. It’s buckets and spades and The Summer of ’42 and Beach Party and sunburnt noses and stolen snogs behind the rocks all over again.
Coast to Coast – Life Along South Africa’s Shores came out of it – a pure celebration of seaside life in South Africa. It’s a coffee table book that can live happily in your beach cottage or back at home as a memento of that beach holiday we’ve all loved at some stage of our lives.
Meet the people we came across, share the good light with us. Feel the heat. Stick your toe in both oceans, throw back your head and laugh like no one’s watching. Then come and have a drink at The Deck. Life is sometimes just a bowl of oysters…
