Hi there again. Here are a few pics taken on our walk today, and also from the beach just below our house. The path along the beach front has been upgraded, and is looking really nice these days.
Here you can see Durban in the distance, and to the right, you might also be able to make out the huge stadium that was built for the 2010 Soccer World Cup.
There were several people on our bit of beach, which is quite unusual except at holiday time. It’s mostly deserted, because it’s not safe to swim here, and there are no lifeguards. Sorry about the curved horizon, due to the wide angle lens.
We were surprised to see that the sea has taken away a lot of the sand which had built up again, and there is now a steep ‘cliff’ to climb down to get to the water’s edge.
I counted sixteen ships waiting to go into the Durban harbour. I wonder what it must be like on these container ships, bobbing about for days on end in the same spot. I think I’d take a rowing boat, and go shopping at Gateway.
Before we left our home in Florida, hubby, a serious gadget-man, set up a remote-controlled camera, so that he can see what, if anything is going on in the house. Here it looks as though we have an intruder walking past my piano….well not really anything to worry about….
It’s the guy who pops in to check on the house every week whilst we’re away. Unfortunately I can’t see if Lizzie is basking in the sun, on the insect screen. I wish I could, ‘cos I miss her. We can also control the temperature and humidity from here, with another special gadget. How cool is that? I had an e-mail from one of my friends, to say that the magazine with my alligator article has been distributed this month. I’m getting a copy sent in the post. Isn’t that so kind of them?
It’s sort of nice being back, but part of me is still over there. I think I prefer the lake and the birds to the sea and the monkeys. Tomorrow we are taking my mom up to Johnnesburg to see our daughter and family for the Easter weekend. There will be four generations of women in the house!
Have a great day everyone. Chat again soon.
Nice pics. 🙂
Hows that second pic, cool
Good morning, Ts. Thanks for visiting. Why have you got 2 s’s at the end of truthseekerss? 😉
because would not take the one only, said someone else had that name. ha ha, took a long time to ask hey
Giess I’m no more observant than The Ark.;)
Really love your posts … feels like I’m right there with you. LOL! Glad you enjoyed the time. 😀
Thanks so much, ft. 😉
Wow the Technology is amazing!! Enjoy the weekend and a Happy Easter to you!
Thanks so much, PPD. Hope you also had a wonderful Easter. xxx
Yes, we were there nine years ago, on a round the world trip. It’s an awesome place to visit. 😉
I’ve meant to remark on your blog background: it is awesome. Peru, right?
Did you take these photos?
Ark have you only noticed that now. Its been her background for years on LD… slow slow unobservant man you are ;P
You are too hard on the Ark, Ts. Most men aren’t as observant as us women. 😉
The camera is such a great idea! A lot of the swallows here use them 🙂
Hubby loves to just go and have a peek now and again. I’m sure there’s no need to worry though. 😉
Wow,you really live in a gorgeous place,my friend!
Yes, I’m so fortunate to have the sea almost on my doorstep, DC. Lots of nice walks around here. 😉
Lovely photos AD, have a blessed Easter with your family
Thanks, so much optie. Hope your Easter is restful and relaxing for you and OH. xxx
Love the photos and the technology is great. You can’t take safety for granted anymore. Congratulation on getting published.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
Very true Francine. I’m looking forward to receiving a copy of the magazine. 😉
Oh gosh, how I miss the sea! Lovely photo’s, AD. Quite stunning!
Thanks, adee. Glad you enjoyed looking at them. 😉
Techno delight makes life so much easier. Nice pics.
Yes it does, newsy. Thanks. 😉
Technology is a wonderful thing 🙂
Isn’t it just, Roly. Men and their toys. 😉
Fabulous about the magazine ad! Does they guy checking the house know you’re watching?
Thanks, Hopestar. Yes, we thought it only fair to tell him. Also, I think that now he knows we can see him, he will pop in more regularly than he would otherwise. 😉
Absolutely lovely pics once again AD. No intruders in Florida….what a treat! I would sure as hell not have come back here if I lived there hon. 🙂
Thanks, Sonel. Actually, I’m longing to go back again, but I have to be patient. I’m a very lucky fish anyway, wherever I may be. 😉 hugs xx
