South Coast Days

We left for our holiday to KZN on Friday 17th July. The alarm was set to get up at 4a.m. as we had the early flight out of Cape Town. Now we are not used to such early rising but all ran smoothly and there was great excitement as we drove to the airport in the dark!
We were bumped up to a British Airways flight instead of Kulula.The added bonus was that the flight was really empty and the older kids each took a row of 3 seats to themselves while Z and I shared our 3 seats and had a good snooze as we winged our way towards our precious family.

We arrived at around 8 a.m. and were met by Pappa P who treated us to breakfast at the airport Spur. I chose to break all the rules and had a chocolate double thick for breakfast! It was good!
We headed down the South Coast and reached mums home by about lunch time. The children always make "welcome " signs when granny comes to stay and we were greeted with the same. A special touch! My mum has always been so good at adding those special touches like a little vase of flowers on the bedside table or a little gift to welcome a visitor. This was no different and there was something comforting about being with my mum again.

After lunch and a little rest, we could not resist heading down to the beach. It is just a walk down the hill and you are there. I made a point of going to beach every day while we were on the South Coast and the children made a point of enjoying the warm Indian Ocean every day. The temperature of the water is so pleasant even though it is officially winter! A welcome change from our own cold and wet winters.
