Port Owen nestles between Velddrif on the Berg River, and the little seaside fishing village of Laaiplek at the mouth of the Berg River. Laaiplek is so called because it was “The Loading Place” for the entire area. What remains of this old jetty is an important part of our history. Photo taken by local photographer Karen van Niekerk
