We’ve been back a week already !!

We’ve been back a week already !!

I feel so bad .. I haven’t blogged since our return, a week ago,  from a fabulous holiday by the sea (Ballito, KwaZulu Natal) and in the mountains (The Cavern, KwaZulu Natal) !!

As this was the first ‘seaside’ holiday without any of our children at all, I had nothing to take photos of !!!!!  .. except sea, sand, shells, sunrises, sea, sky, toes in the sand, sea, dusk, sea, toes in the sea, sea and more sea !!!!!!    I am hoping I won’t be too boring on the seascapes 😉  but I love the sea.  Living in the landlocked city of Johannesburg, a coastal holiday is magical!  I absolutely love the colours.   To fill the lungs with sea air, to watch the sun rise over the sea, to walk on the sand, to swim in the warm Indian Ocean (which I did every day!) …. to rest and relax .. to rejuvenate oneself.

And the mountains of the panoramic Drakensberg … is just .. well .. spectacular!

So …. here’s a taste of what I will be sharing.  A photographic journey with very few words in-between …

A spectacular sunrise !!




The North Coastal region of KwaZulu Natal is known as the Dolphin Coast.  These beauties swim up and down the coast on a daily basis …

Hubby and I spent a day down at the South Coast visiting my cousin, Barry, who I haven’t seen for 5 or 6 years.  I’m going to dedicate an entire blog post on my very interesting cousin who has the most fascinating collections of all sorts of collectables !!
