A trip to meet a Saint and a Blog Friend.

A few years ago, I started blogging on a South African blog site, and before too long had made contact with some really nice people there. Occasionally someone would organise a MOB (a meeting of bloggers), and it was at one of these that I met ‘Kragenhai’ of the ‘My Beach’ blog. If you want a daily dose of beach and the Indian Ocean, just click on his link and follow him. He lives just down the coast from me, and I decided that hubby and I should take a trip to see him before we leave here. Of course, the fact that he has a gorgeous Saint Bernard puppy that I hadn’t yet seen, had nothing whatsoever to do with my decision. 🙂

It was a beautiful day as we drove to Ansteys Beach.

We had arranged to meet at the Green Dolphin restaurant, which wasn’t hard to find, as it was the only one there, and right next to the car park.

Cindy and her master were waiting for us, and as you can see by the damp patches on my jeans, Cindy was very pleased to meet me, and greeted me with sloppy, wet kisses.

We spent a very pleasant couple of hours together, and Cindy was so well behaved whilst we caught up on our news. Here are a few pics of our time together. Click on any pic to enlarge, and to see how utterly adorable she is.

Our route back home took us through the Durban city centre, where we haven’t been for years. I noticed a couple of strange anomalies.

What is the purpose of this bridge? It goes from nowhere to nowhere.

It was a lovely outing, and something I’ve been meaning to do for a while. Marianne of ‘East of Malaga’ blog, encourages us to do “One Trip Every Month,” so why not take up her challenge?

Michelle “The Happy Hugger” has a Weekly Pet Challenge, so as I don’t have any pets of my own, I’m entering Cindy the Saint for this week’s challenge.
