[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Situated halfway between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth, beautiful Mossel Bay is a coastal village and harbour of the World Famous Garden Route. This popular holiday town is surrounded by a sunbathed peninsula and the refreshing waters of the Indian Ocean. Back in 1488 a man called Bartholomew Dias threw anchor in the Bay of St Blaize. "Aguada de So Bras" as it was originally known. This town was then developed as a busy export harbour for wool, ochre and ostrich feathers. In 1601 the Dutch navigator, Paulus van Caerden, renamed it Mossel Bay, as he found that mussels were a most welcome addition to the diet of his crew. Today, mussels gathered in Mossel Bay each spring are rated by gourmets among the finest in the world.The series of photos were taken from 2 to 8 km from the actual Bay.
