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.
