Once a month I meet with an Austrian friend for lunch. She lives in Constantia, and we live in Camps Bay. So we often meet in Hout Bay. One of my favourite places is sitting on the deck at Mariner's Wharf . Why? Because the views of Hout Bay beach and the mountains as a backdrop are just fabulous. It is great to watch young and old enjoying the beach, and often, especially in summer, a group of musicians and other performers entertain during lunch time.
