Quagga Books

At Kalk Bay, we discovered Quagga Books.
This book shop had... a certain flavor.
Exotic, quirky a throwback to another time. Almost like a film set.
Bogie? Indy?
A Piranha juxtaposed with is a copy of Victorian-era children's book, Water Babies by Charles Kingsley.
A cabinet of curiosities.
We looked, but didn't buy.
This is the sort of place that you know if you had time to search, you would find a treasure.
There is a train that runs along the sea from Cape Town that stops here.
Don't forget to stop for cake.


  1. Looks like the cousins took you everywhere you could have dreamed of!

  2. Gail, thanks for taking us along on this fantastic trip. I have loved all your photos and the stories of what you saw. Everything has been so interesting. What a great adventure you had! And what a treat to be there with your cousins.
