The Scenic South – What’s in a name?
Abbreviated by Cape Point, energized by the storms of the `Fairest Cape in all the World”, the Scenic South at the south western extremity of the African continent is `scenic ‘ in every sense of the word. The Far South Peninsula, or Scenic South as we prefer to call it, is our stage. Breathtaking mountain backdrops stage lit by the sun as it rises from beyond False Bay to sink into the Atlantic set the scene, but do not steal the show. The cast, a charismatic ensemble of characters, not all of whom are human, have challenged and enriched the community for centuries.
Using the connecting and information sharing technology of the internet, the Scenic South website is a play within a play. With the active involvement of the community, we wish to connect all Our People, give a voice to Our Passions, and celebrate Our Pastimes to encourage a united, informed and active Scenic South.
Step up to centre stage, there are no auditions for this play – positive active involvement secures you a role as co-script writer. Contact Viv or Kim on Viv@ScenicSouth.co.za or Kim@ScenicSouth.co.za to list your organization, your business or place your community event on the notice-board. Write us an article, send us a photo, or simply `Have your say’ and share your brick-bats and back-pats with us.

At the burnt out ends of hectic days
Computer screen now just a haze
Hubbies in bed- long asleep
Worn out by their wives that weep
When yet again
The screen went “whooof”….
‘The Sporting Scene’ has taken hoof
The events page now a non-event.
That proof of advert…was it sent?
The Submit button far too close to Delete
Aaarrgh… another disappearing feat!
And so it goes and so we find
Hair getting greyer and the forehead more lined.
At last we are done
And with a wave of our wand
‘Scenic South’ can now be found
On Google and Gumtree ensovoorts….
Turn on the computer- all agog
Who has said something on our blog?
No website …
A single page instead
Our domain indeed is registered.
Back to the testpage to find another comma out of place
Another paragraph with too much space.
Leave it now
Get on and do some other stuff!
Then, finally, we are online
Believing all is just quite fine
But whoooosshhh…. the images have gone!
AWOLed into cyberspace
entertaining an alien race
Oh my golly, Oh my soul!
Sucked down into another black hole….
But here we are
And here to stay
We lived to see another day
To learn more tricks
And conjure up a magic potion…
A special lotion to repair
Weeks and weeks of wear and tear
Baggy eyes and sallow skin
We don’t even know what week we’re in!
And for this condition there is no special button
No Quick edit or Permanent Delete
The only option that we have is to Submit
I guess we have to live with it!
