Silent Sunday: To the Lighthouse

Wishing you all a peaceful Sunday.


My Sunday Photo: Lighthouse Memories

My sister’s painting of the Umhlanga lighthouse, which she did for my birthday a few of years ago,  has survived the trip over from South Africa, and it’s so nice to see it again. I have such great memories of living there, right next to the beach.


Hope you’re all having a great Sunday. Mine can be summed up in two words, “Packing Boxes.” We’re going to the Super Bowl dinner at the club tonight, so that will be a most enjoyable end to the busy day.


WPC Alphabet: Smokers’ Arch

In my South African seaside town of Umhlanga Rocks, an arch has been erected in the main street. It stands between the ‘Europa’ and the ‘George’, the two most popular ‘watering holes’ which are both open to the street. Complete with large ashtrays, it’s meant to stop the littering of the sidewalks with cigarette butts.


Last time I was there, the arch was deserted and the street was still awash with cigarette butts. I think some people really need to learn their Alphabet.

I’m using one of the new 2016 WPC badges, designed by The Cardinal. There are a few lovely ones to choose from, but of course I chose the bird.

Wordless Wednesday: Any Old Iron

This mini junkyard at the Piggly Wiggly Country Village in South Africa, reminded me of that old Harry Champion song, ‘Any Old Iron’ which was often playing on the radio when I was a child. This bicycle looks as old as the song. I just realised that this photo fits Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge ‘Metal and Wood’, so am linking it to that too.






Weird Faces in Umhlanga’s Rocks

There are huge rocks along the coastline here in Umhlanga Rocks, hence it’s name. As some of you may remember, I ‘suffer’ from a condition called Pareidolia, which means that I see faces in almost everything I look at. These rocks are no exception. Can you see what I see?


Here are some more, which to me look like animals racing towards the beach.  I’m sure the closest one is a dog.
