WPC Danger: Rock Fishing

Enjoying the thrill of the breaking waves at high tide. Fishing rocks!

And there it is! The long wait has paid off.

And there it is! The long wait has paid off.

My entry for this challenge is a bit late, due to internet connectivity problems, but there it is – I could not resist sharing. My son, who professes to suffer from acrophobia whenever he is required to get onto a ladder or a kitchen chair to complete a chore, loves the thrill of fishing from the rocks.

I am so happy (may I repeat that? soooo happy!!!) that our internet connectivity has been restored at long last. Thank you to old friends for staying with me and welcome to new friends who visited my blog while we were hanging around in cyber limbo. I have a lot of catching up to do and I also have a few stories to tell – looking forward to spending many happy hours in blogland.

While waiting for our data lines we made the best of the excellent weather here on the KZN Southcoast and spent many happy hours on the beach. Then the weather turned and the past few days the water bucketed down, followed by a fresh wind and a cold nip in the air. It seems that winter has arrived, BUT today the sun is shining and the hibiscus flowers are blooming.

😊 

 

Sien? Somer is nog hier.

Vroeg in die oggend versamel ‘n klompie bye om hulle dors te les met die doudruppels op die glasomhulsel van ons buitelig.

Sommige honger outjies duik sommer gou-gou kop eerste in die blomme om ‘n bietjie nektar op te spoor vir ontbyt.

Vroegoggend en die hibiscus blom vrolik.

Laataand en die gekkos versamel op die buitelig om muskiete te vang (mother’s little helpers!). Ons noem hulle plakkermanne omdat hulle harige pootjies so vasplak aan die glas. Kyk mooi na die inskrywing op die gloeilamp “SPAR – goodliving”. Inderdaad.

WPC Wanderlust: Barefoot across the desert

WPC Wanderlust

The challenge for this week: Have you traveled anywhere exciting lately? This week, let’s see where you’ve been. Well, this week I crossed a desert on my two bare feet, in scorching heat and with only a small bottle of water to quench my thirst. If you don’t believe me, check out the images below – no shoes.

In Afrikaans kan Wanderlust seker maar vertaal word met Lus vir Gatskuur. Die opdrag is om fotos te wys van ‘n opwindende reis wat jy onlangs onderneem het. Maklik. Ek het hierdie week ‘n woestyn kaalvoet oorgesteek, in skroeiende hitte en met net ‘n klein botteltjie water om my dors te les. Nee, ek lieg nie; kyk maar na die fotos hier onder – geen skoene nie.

Okay, maybe I exaggerated. Just a little. The Red Desert situated just south of Port Edward, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, is reputed to be the smallest desert in the world; it measures 200 meters in diameter and 110,000 square meters in total. Ah yes, and I must confess that I did wear flipflops. 😉

Natuurlik weet mede-Suid-Afrikaners dat ek so nou en dan oordryf. Net so effens. Die rooi woestyn is geleë net suid van Port Edward, KwaZulu-Natal en word gereken die kleinste woestyn in die wêreld te wees: 200 meter in deursnee en 11 hektaar in totaal. O ja, en soos julle kan sien, het ek darem wel plakkies gedra. 😉
