Hallo there, we had an awesome time on the Kwazulu Natal coast.
We stayed at the Umhlanga Cabanans just one street back from the main beach.
On Sunday 22 February my darling man turned 60. We booked a table at the Versailles Restaurant and had a stunning 5 course meal to celebrate the occassion.
I love this photo.
Some more sand sculpting.
...they are really talented.
Every morning we strolled down this walkway. I was amazed at how clean it was. Umhlanga can teach a few municipalities how this is done.
Our hike to the other side of the lighthouse gave us a good 6km walk each morning.
A very impressive pier. I again realised that I am a real saltwater girl.
We also visited the Durban Botanical gardens.
I just love the vegetation in this area of South Africa...it is so lush.
Kobus and I went a tad "snap happy".
Unfortunately it was a cloudy day and the waterlilies didn't open.
Here you can see how beautiful the crocus' plants are.
The fig trees are amazing...they have roots coming down all the way from the branches...and when the roots reach the ground it becomes solid like another trunk.
You can see how massive some of these trees are.
The beautiful "fragrance" garden.
One of those rare moments...when you get somebody to snap a photo of both of you together.
...and a selfie of course, with a beautiful flowering plant in the background.
We also visited the colourful Victoria Street Market...
...and while there they mixed us a wonderful curry mixture according to our taste.
I will be back next week to share some more moments from our vacation.
