    This morning I shut off the news, mounted my bicycle to the back of my car and headed down to the beachfront. All bathing has been banned (who knew viruses could swim?) but people are still allowed to go out and enjoy the sunshine as we draw towards the end of a very long and hot summer. I rode for about 9km along the promenade, snapping some photos with my iPhone as I went. Here's a few from the ride. Walter White has been through some wars and has eaten a nice chunk of money, but he has a new engine and most recently a new ABS pump, which cost almost as much as the engine. It's a wonderful car and I hope to keep it for a long time. The city between the dolos. This is as far as I could ride going south. I'm on the north pier of the harbour, facing north(ish). I started my ride just behind the dolos on the right. The inspiration for the title of this thread. On another pier (which I have posted photos of here many times before) sits a restaurant patron having a glass of white wine at 10:48am. Port o' Durban, my childhood home. I lived on the 5th and 6th floors of this apartment building from the age of 9 until I left home aged 22. It's definitely the most unusual and modern building design along the beachfront. We moved in a couple of years after it had been completed around 1977. I have so many memories of this building and while it has seen plenty of changes since I lived there, I bet I could still walk around it blindfolded and know exactly where I was. It faces north so in the winter time it gets pretty warm because of the floor to ceiling windows. Addington Hospital, place where I was born and currently the holding point for local people infected with CV19. I was reading this morning that about 8 or 9 of the group of people who brought the virus here from Italy and who are being treated there are taking legal action against the department of health to release them because they are asymptomatic. The health minister is denying them their release until they have been tested again, which apparently can't be done because they don't have test kits. This is a government hospital and not a place where I would want to be cooped up. It may look ok from the outside, but inside it is a mess and in a state of disrepair. Lifts don't always work and water supply is dodgy. The Bike & Bean. This is one of a few places along the promenade where you can rent a bicycle and have a cup of coffee. Normally it's a lot busier. All images taken with and edited on a 3 year old iPhone 7P. The best camera is the one you have with you.

    Well done, Dallas. I've been to Cape Town twice, but you showed me some areas I haven't seen. And we didn't make it to the top of Table Mountain on either visit because of bad weather.

    Very interesting photos, Dallas. Good to see a bit of your habitat, so different from ours.

    I have done this myself. There are two viewing modes that are NOT full screen. One shows the icon bar (colored dots you reference), one doesn't to maximize screen real estate, both still showing the normal macOS menu bar.

    Thanks for the reminder Dallas and glad to help support the work.

    It sounds like you entered the full screen view by accidentally clicking the green ball. You can return to normal view by pressing the ESC key. I use full screen and swipe between desktops with the 4 finger gesture on my trackpads.

    Silly me I was in the wrong view!🥵 seems all sorted, damn it had to be something simple, that annoyingly eludes you when trying to work out the answer.

    This is where I spent the night there. Even with a good sleeping bag and a thin mattress, this was probably the worst night of my life. Minus 10C inside the tent for a guy from the tropics was too much.
This leaderboard is set to Johannesburg/GMT+02:00
