Leaving Owls View by foot, an hour-and-a-half walk up the easy and accessible Elsies Peak rewards any walker with gorgeous views spanning False Bay. Look back and you can cast your eye across the valley and see the Atlantic Ocean.

On your way back, you can either pop down to the beach for a swim, or make your way home to continue your relaxing getaway.

Baboon Matters
13/08/2019

Baboon Matters

So last night, in the small hours of the morning (when sleep eludes me so well) I was thinking about the last four Scarborough girls, thinking what it must be like to lose family, lose children and sisters, to be away from the troop family. I worry about Skye who should have troop juveniles to play with (and to be disciplined by) - what an unusual existence for these girls.

Then I remembered Jane; many of the "long time" Scarborough and Kommetjie residents will remember Janey baboon with so much love.

Jane used to leave her troop and spend months alone in Scarborough or Kommetjie; typically she would give birth in one of the villages and spend many months with her baby going between the villages, taking a banana or two for her and the baby from the local cafe, no-one minded then.....

Stories about Jane abound, everyone has a favourite Jane story (a few are in the book Beast or Blessing), but one of my favourite stories was told to me by a very busy Scarborough working mom.
She described how she coming home, rushing in late, on a deadline, loads to do....she threw her bag down and immediately sat at her computer to get going on her work.
After a short few minutes she became aware of a strange noise, she looked around, couldn't see anything so carried on typing away. The noise continued, then another strange sound - so she got up to investigate and discovered Jane fast asleep under a table, with her new baby cuddled to her chest. There strange noise had been Jane gently snoring...

I suppose it was a different time, those years ago, but what wonderful memories we have of the baboons.

Stay safe Angelina, you and your girls are well loved!

CINEMA/ART HOUSE & NEW RELEASES, CAPE TOWN: Labia Theatre

Happy 70th to the Labia #Labia70

Wonderful to be at The Labia, last night (May 19, 2019), at the awesome birthday party, celebrating the Labia’s 70th birthday. Fabulous spread, music and people.

The Labia Cinema is regarded as the oldest independent art-repertory cinema in South Africa. It did not start as a cinema. The building was opened in May 1949 by the Italian Embassy, by Countess Labia as a ballroom/theatre for the staging live performance. (The countess, Ida Robinson was a South African woman - daughter of mining magnate, Sir JB Robinson. She married Count Natale Labia. He was an Italian who joined the Italian Foreign Service in 1906 and was transferred to Johannesburg, in 1918 as Italian consul and then he met Ida.)

In 1989, Ludi and Ann Kraus came on board and the Labia Cinema began. Ludi's father ran the Alhambra Cinema in Windhoek from 1961 for about 30 years, so he was immersed in the industry from a young age.

Ludi and Ann have built up a vibrant cinema which feels like a theatre. Cannot recall the last time, we went to cinema in a mall. It is interesting to see how the audience mix has changed over the years. It used to be students but it is all ages now.

Years ago, The Labia was largely Art House and now we get the new releases as they come out. Last night, at the 70th, the surprise film of the night was Rocketman – the biopic musical inspired by Elton John’s life. Rocketman premiered at the Cannes Film Festival on May 16. Here we are – May 19 and we have the film on our screens in Africa at our beloved Labia.

Rocketman tracks Elton John’s early life (disconnected father, awful mother, fabulous grandmother), his development as a music maker, lifelong collaboration with wordsmith Bernie Taupin, battle with substance abuse, identity/sexuality, love, relationships. It’s a sweet, tender film – evoking old style film musicals where protagonists break out into song. A bit long but lovely insights into his life. I knew about Elton’s classical music training (Royal Academy of Music) but had no idea that he was a major success at the age of 23. It is directed by Dexter Fletcher and written by Lee Hall.

Back to the #Labia70. There are four screens. It is a heritage building, filled with charm. The seats in Screen 1 are comfy but some seats in other screens are not great, so take a cushion. Terrace with urban garden, eats. Popcorn, vodka slushies, Gluehwein. At the opening, a short film #labia70 by @yazeedkamaldien was screened and special mention was made to the Gluehwein – that German/Swiss fans from Europe say it is better than at home.


Salute to Ludi and Ann Kraus, Michael Berkel and Rose Nhlapo and team Labia for making this our film home. Booking essential for new releases.
