Windy Terrace at Elandsbaai

Elandsbaai hotel is totally uninspiring, with a dining-room out of a Steinbeck novel (and of about the same vintage) but a glorious if windblown terrace. Here you can eat delicious crayfish that have never seen the inside of a supermarket, and that are affordable to the less than wealthy (me) while you watch the surfers taking long rides on the far side of the bay, at one of South Africa's two top surfing spots.
