The Dog Stone

A big gneiss rock resembling a dog inspired Thomas Grace to name Hondeklipbaai, which translated, would mean “Dog Stone Bay”. During 1853 the “dog” was defaced when its ear was chopped of and taken to Cape Town in order to start the fictitious “Dog’s Ear Copper Company”. During a severe lightning storm in the 1970’s, it lost its nose as well.
