Here’s my contribution to Paula’s Thursday Special ‘Water’. This photo was taken from the Umhlanga Rocks Lifeguard station, where hubby and I often went for an early breakfast. The crew are most probably on their way out to inspect the shark nets which lie a few hundred metres offshore.

Did you have this view for breakfast? We were there once with our son who was 25 at the time and fancied himself a surfer – pulled out by the current we have a lot to thank those lifeguards and their boat for!!
We also had a very good full English breakfast, as well as the view. I’m so happy that your son was rescued. Those rip tides are so treacherous.
Yes they said it happens a lot – next time we’ll just have breakfast!
It reminds me of the trips out with them to do the inspections. One of the highlights for Rotary Exchange Students!
They must have loved that. 🙂
Schönes Wochenende für dich Grüße und Freundschaft Gislinde
Thanks so much, Gislinde. Wishing you a very happy weekend. 🙂
Another lovely view. Now your breakfast view is alligators not sharks. You like to live on the wild side, I think. 😉
Thanks so much, Gallivanta. Haha Yes, it would certainly seem that way. Always have to have something with big teeth lurking nearby. 🙂
Lovely shot! I just love your photos and how you participate in so many photo challenges!
Thanks, Constance. Glad you enjoy my pics. 🙂
I’m glad we don’t have to deal with sharks around here.
I’m sure you are, CG. Alligators too. 😀
Thanks so much. 🙂

Mmm watching shark nets for breakfast :O What a place! I wonder what they served… Thank you, Sylvia. I am sorry for being late. I could not log on yesterday.
Yes it really is a great place, Paula. We had eggs and bacon for breakfast, 🙂
Were they catching sharks?
No………the nets are there to stop the sharks from coming to the bathing areas. 😃👙
Now where is my anti nausea medication? Looks like a rough ride. 🙂
Oh yes, a very rough ride through those breakers, Sue. Those guys are made of stern stuff. 😎
Did you go on the boat? I hope you were wearing your life jacket. Looks like a storms coming! 🙂
No I certainly didn’t go out to check the shark nets. 🙂 I was too busy feeding my face anyway, and I’m sure those young guys wouldn’t want a senior citizen tagging along. 🙂
I’m sure they would love to have you aboard…but I’m happy to hear you stayed on shore and fed yourself. 🙂
Great picture but I’m not so happy in the water on a boat .It makes me sick.
Thanks, Marylou. That’s very unfortunate to get seasick. I’m lucky that I don’t. 🙂
Such an awesome capture Sylvia, great photo.
Thanks, Pennie. 🙂
Nee dankie dit lyk gevaarlik!
It must be lunchtime . . . I found myself hoping you’d share what you ate for breakfast with your hubby while the team inspected the shark nets.
We ordered a full English breakfast wit fresh orange juice.
Thanks for coming by, Cecilia. Glad you enjoyed my post. 🙂
Wow, what a picture. I even learned that there are actually shark nets out there, interesting. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for stopping by, Cecilia. Glad you enjoyed my post. 🙂
Gah! sharks! :O
Not many people get eaten. 😀
Thank god for that lol
Very well captured, any windsurfers there..? 🙂
Thanks, Drake. Yes it’s a great place for all kinds of surfing. 🙂
