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.
