Complete Change of Scenery

Well this is a huge shift from the shores of the Indian Ocean to the swamps of South Carolina. This morning I woke up early enough to be at Cypress Gardens by sunrise.  There was no sunrise because it was overcast, but the azaleas were still in bloom and it is a pretty place.

Umhlanga Rocks, Durban

I've been preparing to head back home Stateside today, packing and wrapping up business here.  This afternoon we took some time to walk along the beach north of Durban, snap a few pics of the Umhlanga Rocks Lighthouse and breathe deeply the fresh salt air.  Until next time ....

A walk down Durban's beachfront

We took a walk down Durban's beachfront on Friday evening and what a busy, vibrant place it is.  Lots of people; biking, skateboarding, walking, running, dog-walking, people with children - all enjoying the evening outdoors.

Drakensberg Mountains of Royal Natal Park

Just returned last night from a few days at Thendela in the Northern Natal Drakensberg area.  It is the most beautiful place.  We saw lots of wildlife, birds, etc., walked and hiked for miles.  Now a few more things to take care of in Durban over the next week and I'll be headed back home.
