Description: The thing about having your favourite weekend getaway spots is that you have mixed feelings about wanting to share them with the world and jealously guarding them. The beach camp in Cape Columbine Nature Reserve in Pater Noster on the West Coast is one such spot. “Why am I even telling you about it?” wonders Justin. The diving doesn’t yield the desired bounty but there are plenty of periwinkles. Hooked out of their shells with a pin and dipped in garlic butter or vinegar, they’re not an everyday experience but a special one nonetheless. There’s a feast of salads – Thai-style with prawns, mussels and mango, warm tomato and equally warm mushroom – with apple crumble and whipped cream for pud.
