One Word Sunday: Skyline

Debbie’s one word this Sunday is ‘Skyline’, so I’ve travelled over in spirit to South Africa and the seaside town of Umhlanga where we used to live.

This was the skylne we saw as we walked a few steps down the pathway leading from our house to the beach and the Indian Ocean.

A short distance along the beach and past the lighthouse, one could look back and see this skyline with an often hazy view of the city of Durban in the distance..

A little further along the promenade, one could look out to sea and admire the candelabra-shaped aloes which line the pathway.

I’m not really much of an early bird, but getting up in time to view the sunrise over the sea was always worth the effort. Now all these skylines are making me really homesick.

I hope you’ve all enjoyed a lovely weekend. To join Debbie’s ‘One Word Sunday’, just click the link.

  1. Your photos took me right back to a holiday we had in south Africa, (2014). We spent a week in Umshlanga, and enjoyed every minute of it! The weather was lovely, we enjoyed walking along the beach every day. Thanks for the memories, Sylvia.

  2. I was thinking just that as I scrolled down, Ad. Your beautiful lighthouse! Honey, it will still be there, and hopefully all the people you love too. Hard not to feel robbed by this virus. Sending hugs, darlin! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  3. Sylvia – you have an amazing way of filling up one word – skyline. We see the horizon from a distance and yet the sky is as close as our raised hand. One of my most favourite thoughts that came to mind when I was walking along the beach with you was:

    All this time
    The Sun never says to the Earth,

    “You owe me.”

    What happens
    With a love like that,
    It lights the whole sky.”

    P.S. your posts light up my sky! Thank you, Sylvia.

  4. Beautiful shots, Sylvia. I know you’re torn with loved ones in the States, Scotland, and South Africa. Mobility has its advantages . . . and its disadvantages.

  5. Wow Sylvia, how long did you live in SA? It’s SO beautiful there – as is obvious in your wonderful captures. As for the sunrise, I always think God knows how much early risers (like me and maybe like you) despise the early wake-up call and so we are gifted with some of his/her best efforts 😊
