Only one more day left here at the beach before our 600 km drive up to our daughter’s house in Johannesburg. It’s been a wonderful month with lots of time spent with my sister and good friends. The sound of the crashing waves is music to my ears, something  I’m really going to miss,

Six Word Saturday: This Beach Is To Die For.

This beach is definitely “to die for” but his partner, busy on her cell phone hasn’t even noticed. I hope he was only playing dead.

Pull Up A Seat At The Beach

Time for another ‘Pull Up A Seat Challenge’ from XingfuMama. This week, let’s go to the beach and get some sand between our toes.

When we arrived at the Isle Of Palms ‘Wild Dunes’ resort near Charleston, where we were to stay the night on our drive from New Jersey to Florida, there was not a single person to be seen on the beach. In fact, the whole place seemed deserted.

The beach in Phuket which had been hit by a Tsunami just two years before our visit seemed just as unpopular.

In Umhlanga Rocks, things were a lot more lively as many spectators took a seat on the grass as well as on benches to view the annual Red Bull surfing competition.

Further along the beach, the rocks provided improvised seating for holiday makers.

What a great place to sit for a few hours, quietly reading or just watching the waves.

It seems that everyone loves to be at the beach.

It’s the most relaxing place to sit and do absolutely nothing.

I’m looking forward to going back there at the end of May.

Hope your Sunday is also very relaxing. If you would like to join in the ‘Pull Up A Seat Challenge’, just click the link.

The best kind of Monday blues.

Yesterday, I had a wonderful reunion with my sister and her family. There will be more good times together in the next two weeks and on Wednesday, our daughter and granddaughter arrive to spend a long weekend with us.

Wishing you all a splendid week.

Silent Sunday: A Frolic of Dolphins

” On the Planet Earth, Man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much …… the wheel, New York, wars and so on –  whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time.

But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man, for precisely the same reasons.” ~ Douglas Adams – The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

Wishing all the Dads a very happy and relaxing Fathers’ Day.
