With just about two weeks left of the national lockdown, it’s safe to say we’ve done very well so far. There is a lot going on around the country and Cape Town. From time to time, it’s good to take a break from it all.

Yesterday [April 16], which would have been the end of lockdown, the Western Cape’s confirmed coronavirus cases increased to 702. Premier Alan Winde encouraged citizens to protect themselves and others during this time.

“The next two weeks of lockdown are an opportunity for us to do even more to stop the spread. The more we do now, the more time we have to prepare ourselves and all of our systems, and the more lives we will be able to save,” he said.

Having new coronavirus updates bombard your screens day in and day out can cause some stress and take a toll. Be sure to take a moment, now and then, to appreciate that it’s not all bad. At least we have beautiful views and stunning sunsets which we can be grateful for.

If you need to take some time to relax, why not take a look at these calming images from around the cape:
