Just to attract more tourists the tourism bureau in Hermanus announced that the first whales were spotted. This turned out to be a hoax for nobody living and working along the coastline has seen one yet…. Even the subsidized ‘Whale Horn Blower’ (guy who blows the horn when a whale is seen) hasn’t been spotted… But we saw this morning a whale tail coming out of the water …. of a fountain…
Just outside our village along the way to Hermanus there is the community The Blue Moon. Most co-owners adhere to an alternative green lifestyle and you can find, amongst others, a worm nursery, solar power, wind mill(s), etc.
Why the name ‘Blue Moon’ I don’t know but when I shot this picture earlier today I could not help to think of it.
I like lights; especially unique designs. But I also like to save on the electricity bill. So we have solar heating of the geyser and enough glass to provide us with daylight during most of the day. The guest room has its own shower and if guests use it during the daylight there is no need to switch the light on. In case of need we do have a blue reading light with energy-saving LEDs. This light also creates an blue-ish sphere, even by daylight.
