Stella picked me up this morning to take me for a cappuccino at the newly opened and much promoted East Beach Cafe.
I don't expect there is anyone in the world who isn't aware of this latest Thomas Heatherwick designed beach front cafe.
I'm not going to say too much on the subject as controversy seems to pop out of my mouth - but I am a fan of the structure but not of the owners - and leave it there.....
there's always someone getting in the way of a great shot....
It was so amusing as while we were there outside was a trendy floppy haired photographer taking photos....two life guards walked past presumably patrolling the area for drowning children (and sadly it does happen) when the photographer decided to use them as props.....but the thing is and what I find so funny is the huge discrepancy in the images I see in Vogue and the Telegraph and real life. He couldn't take a photo of the life guards without 'others' getting in the shot. In the end and as we left someone was asking pedestrians to stop and wait until the the shot had been taken....Stella and I thought he should have just got up a bit earlier.
Life guards and a few 'locals'perhaps giving off too much of a vintage'vibe'
But as you can see from the photos we had a laugh and will visit again soon.
