Harbour House, a favorite waterfront restaurant of ours in Kalk Bay near Cape Town, recently lost windows to a rogue wave.

Waves crashing over the Kalk Bay harbour pier

A few weeks ago, when having lunch at bottom neighbor Live Bait with Selina, the waves were strong enough to give patrons a few sweats, as the water crashed loudly against the tall glass bays and managed to spray nearby tables with a salty twist.

The restaurant’s ocean facing lower wall is the actual breakwater and while these were baby waves compared to the giants that sometimes smash on the pier, the view was lovely as ever and the food delicious.
