City Hall in Yzerfontein

Yzerfontein (Iron Fountain) is a small town on the Atlantic Ocean just north of Cape Town. The building in the picture is the city hall. It is a great example of some of the prevalent features of South African architecture. It is a cement and rock structure, with an outdoor braai featured prominently and a thatched roof. At high tide the ocean come to within about fifty feet of the back door.
